Book Launch, Conversation and Screening | What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art from 1960 to the Present with Dan Nadel, Peter Saul, Forcefield and more

Tues | 6 pm

“What Nerve! reveals a hidden history of American figurative painting, sculpture and popular imagery. It documents and/or restages four installations, spaces or happenings, in Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit and Providence, which were crucial to the development of figurative art in the United States. Several of the better-known artists in What Nerve! have been the subject of significant exhibitions or publications, but this is the first major volume to focus on the broader impact of figurative art to connect artists and collectives from different generations and regions of the country.”

Please join us for a conversation between What Nerve! curator Dan Nadel and artist Peter Saul, followed by a special screening of Forcefield’s 2001 video “Tunnel Vision.” Book signing with Nadel, Saul,  and members of Forcefield, including Jim Drain and Leif Goldberg.
