Reflections on Artistic License
Richard Prince

Tuesday, December 17, 2019, 6:30pm
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
www.guggenheim.org

In this series of conversations, the six artist-curators of Artistic License, currently on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York through January 12, are invited to reflect on their interpretations of the museum’s collection and the themes that informed their curatorial selections. Richard Prince’s presentation investigates the uncannily coherent formal qualities of the museum’s international holdings of abstract painting and sculpture from the 1940s and ’50s, and ultimately questions how taste is formed. To attend the event, purchase tickets at www.guggenheim.org.

Tour

American Pastoral

Thursday, March 5, 2020, 6:30pm
Gagosian, Britannia Street, London

Join Gagosian for a tour of the group exhibition American Pastoral. The show juxtaposes modern and contemporary works with historical American landscapes ranging from Albert Bierstadt’s depiction of the sublime in Sunset over the River (1877) to Edward Hopper’s tranquil seaside scene, Gloucester Harbor (1926). Gagosian’s Alice Godwin will focus on a select grouping of exhibited works that seek to challenge the idealized vision of the American Dream that has long been a rich topic of inquiry for artists in the United States. To attend the free event, RSVP to londontours@gagosian.com. Space is limited.
