This symposium brings together artists, curators, and scholars to discuss Mary Corse’s work and her innovative engagements with the medium of painting. Topics to be considered include: materials and luminosity, contingency and vision, and new perspectives on artistic practices of the 1960s and 70s.
The program is co-organized by the Whitney and Dia Art Foundation and planned in conjunction with the concurrent presentations of Corse's work.
