Karen Wilkin, Independent Curator and Art Critic
In 1930s New York innovative artists such as Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning, and many others forged their identities as artists, transforming conceptions of what a work of art could be. The enigmatic John Graham was the center of this circle of inventive young artists and served as a mentor and source of information. This lecture examines the complex interrelationships among these adventurous artists during their formative years and the evidence of dialogue and cross-fertilization apparent in their work of the period.
