Barry Schwabsky - The Observer Effect: On Contemporary Painting — in conversation with Lynne Cooke — at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Thursday, January 30, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Schwabsky, a poet, art historian, and art critic for The Nation, has published widely in venues including Artforum, Art in America, and The London Review of Books. While his past books have considered artists across disciplines, from sculptors like Jessica Stockholder to conceptual artists like Mel Bochner, he’s widely considered one of today’s best critics on contemporary painting. Gathering a wide-ranging selection of Schwabsky’s work since 2000, this collection reflects on the practice through considerations of both American artists including Alex Katz, Kerry James Marshall, Nicole Eisenman, and Dana Schutz, and international figures like Bernard Frize, Tal R, and Ha Chonghyun. Schwabsky will be in conversation with Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator, Special Projects in Modern Art, at the National Gallery of Art.
