Artist Talk at Portland Art Museum
Creating space for your own work involves creating space for the work that made a difference to you. This is why artists write essays; they do so to reposition the way we read or the way we respond so that the work they do can be read or seen more clearly.
-- Colm Tóibín, Introduction to What Would Lynne Tillman Do? by Lynne Tillman (p. 14)
Lately I've been visiting the Portland Art Museum and gathering my thoughts about two works in their permanent collection: Man Ray's Cadeau (1921/1972, pictured above) and Men's Formal Hat from Korea's Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). I will be speaking about both works in two weeks as part of the Museum's monthly series, Artist Talks. The series asks local and regionally based artists, designers, and thinkers to address works of art in the Museum's permanent collection and how they relate to their own practices. Please join me for a lively conversation.
