Talk | The Undoing of Painting with Raphael Rubinstein

Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019 – Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019

06:30 PM – 06:30 PM


Join University of Houston School of Art Professor, Raphael Rubinstein in a discussion around the exhibition Cheryl Donegan: GRLZ + VEILS. Donegan’s work embraces everyday materials and welcomes errors and glitches, her approach to painting is deeply connected to international avant-garde practices and theories that began in the 1960s. This talk will situate Donegan’s work in relation to artists such as German artist Sigmar Polke and the French Supports/Surface group, as well as to corresponding philosophical discourse. This is a seated talk within the gallery space, to request an accessibility accommodation for this program, please e-mail fcleveland@camh.orgas far in advance as possible.
