Material Art: Conserving Jay DeFeo

TUE, May 28, 2013
7–9 pm

Patron, Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor-level members

Jay DeFeo (1929–1989) described her artistic process as “an exploration, an experimentation and a sheer love of material.” Her works combine a sophisticated mastery of media with sensuous delight in their physical properties and expressive potential. Join Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, the Whitney’s Associate Director for Conservation and Research, for an illuminating discussion on DeFeo’s methods of manipulating materials from oil and acrylic to gesso and particulate matter.

Open to Whitney Patron, Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor members. RSVP required. To upgrade your membership, please call (212) 570-3641.
