Power Talk: Courtney J. Martin

Sunday, October 29, 2017
3:00pm– 4:00pm

In this Power Talk, Courtney Martin, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of the Dia Art Foundation, will use American painter Robert Ryman to examine the question of painting within the discourse of object-based Minimalism. Active from the late 1950s, Ryman’s work is often aligned with Abstraction Expressionism due to his use of a predominantly abstract idiom; Conceptual art because he departed from traditional materials to make paintings from plastics and metals; and, most frequently, Minimalism due to his employment of achromatic or white surfaces. This lecture will draw on the 2015-16 exhibition of Ryman’s paintings that she curated for the Dia Art Foundation.
