Join artists Lisa Beck, Brainard Carey, and Archie Rand for a panel discussion about Reeves’s life and work and the relevance of her fearless, idiosyncratic aesthetic to the contemporary moment. The panel will be moderated by Melissa Ragona, Associate Professor of Visual Culture and Critical Theory, School of Art, Carnegie Mellon University.
The Drawing Center’s Jennifer Wynne Reeves: It’s Alright for Now presents a long overdue consideration of Reeves’s unique contribution to the dialogue between representation and abstraction that has preoccupied recent art. From the late 1990s until her too-early death from brain cancer in 2014, Jennifer Wynne Reeves (b. 1963, Royal Oak, MI) developed a reputation as an artist’s artist, garnering an intense and loyal following especially among fellow artists who appreciated her ability to load errant scribbles and globs of crusty paint with humor, narrativity, and poignant emotional affect. Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator, with Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator.Buy tickets/get more info now
