Conversation | Painting as Distillation: Jill Mulleady and Avery Singer
Fri | 7PM
On the occasion of Jill Mulleady’s exhibition Fight-or-Flight, please join Mulleady, artist Avery Singer and SI Curator Laura McLean-Ferris to discuss the two artists’ practices. The conversation will take as a starting point the concept of distillation in order to explore painting that includes a variety of compositional layerings and art historical motifs to depict contemporary life. The artists will discuss their own processes and how they approach each other’s work as painters.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: events at Swiss Institute are limited capacity, and entry is on a first-come, first-served basis.
