This Thursday, December 9, at 7 p.m., the VCS department will present a panel discussion in conjunction with the exhibition “Between Picture and Viewer: The Image in Contemporary Painting,” which is on display through December 22nd at SVA’s Visual Arts Gallery.
The conversation will be moderated by Katy Siegel, Professor of Art History at Hunter College, contributing editor at Artforum, and co-author of Art Works: Money (Thames & Hudson, 2004). The panel will consist of contemporary painters Josephine Halvorson, Jim Hyde and Dana Schutz, who will discuss the role of the image in their work. The event is designed to complement the gallery exhibition, which co-curators Tom Huhn and Isabel Taube organized in order to explore the changing role of painting in the recent era of media saturation and image proliferation.
The event will be held at the SVA Theatre at 333 23rd street, and is free and open to the public.
