Interactions of Color: Alex Da Corte and David Breslin in Conversation

MON, July 1, 2019
7 pm

Floor 8

Join artist Alex Da Corte and David Breslin, DeMartini Family Curator and Director of the Collection and curator of the exhibition Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s, for a conversation about abstraction, color, and optical perception in painting and related media. 

Alex Da Corte creates vibrant and immersive large-scale installations that include wall-based works, sculptures, and videos. Colorful and humorous, his work combines personal narrative, art-historical references, pop-culture characters, and the glossy aesthetics of commercial advertising to explore the absurdity and psychological complexity of the images and stories that pervade contemporary American life.

Ticket holders are invited to view the exhibition beginning at 6:30 pm.

This event has reached ticketing capacity. A limited number of standby tickets may be available at the admissions desk on a first-come, first-served basis. The standby line will open one hour prior to the program’s start time.
