September 6 – Sean Dockray, artist, writer, and founding director of Telic Arts Exchange in Los Angeles, California, has initiated critical and innovative projects, including The Public School and AAAARG.ORG. For Tuesday Evenings, he presents Exhibitability, a reflection on the sometimes destructive threshold he observed while running an art space as well as his own queries on alternatives to the exhibition model.
September 13 – Alejandro Cesarco, born in Montevideo, Uruguay, is an artist living and working in New York. For Tuesday Evenings, he presents his work as seen in the Uruguay Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale, as well as his curatorial endeavors in Uruguay, the United States, and Argentina.
September 20 – No lecture, the Museum will close at 5 pm on September 20
September 27 – Gretchen Diebenkorn Grant, daughter of Richard Diebenkorn, shares her insights and thoughts on the life and art of her father on the occasion of Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series, the most comprehensive show to date of Diebenkorn’s celebrated works, the Ocean Park paintings.
October 4 – Jayson Musson is an artist and writer living and working in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For Tuesday Evenings, he shares his multifaceted body of work, which includes provocative performances, drawings, and writings, as well as Art Thoughtz by his “cousin” Hennessey Youngman.
October 11 – Dr. Frances Colpitt, art critic, corresponding editor to Art in America, and holder of the Deedie Potter Rose Chair of Art History at Texas Christian University, presents the problems of abstract painting in the postmodern/electronic age in her Tuesday Evenings lecture, Problems and Possibilities for Abstract Painting in Postmodernism.
October 18 – Julie VandenBerg Snow, FAIA, here as the lead juror for the Forth Worth AIA annual Design Awards, presents her thoughts on architecture today and how those ideas relate to the designs and buildings produced by her “studio-based, project-driven” practice, Julie Snow Architects Inc.
October 25 – David Pagel, curator, art critic, and associate professor of art at Claremont University in Claremont, California, presents Getting It Wrong in Just the Right Way: Diebenkorn’s West Coastism, addressing the various ways some prominent California artists, including Richard Diebenkorn, have been out of step with prevailing trends and tendencies, often doing things wrong to get their art right.
November 1 – Koki Tanaka, born in Tochigi, Japan, is an artist living in Los Angeles, California. For Tuesday Evenings, he presents the development of his playful and insubordinate art that, as he describes in an interview with Akiko Miki, a curator at Palais de Tokyo, has moved from an interest in “how the exhibition is structured to the ordinary process of making of the work, to how the content is developed.”
November 8 – Michael Auping, chief curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, presents Los Angeles: Light and Space at Land’s Edge, focusing on the unique qualities of light in Southern California and how those qualities have inspired painters, sculptors, and installation artists for decades. What began as painterly replications of light—both abstract (Richard Diebenkorn, John McLaughlin) and representational (Ed Ruscha and Vija Celmins)—evolved into architectural investigations of the phenomenology of light (Robert Irwin, Maria Nordman, and Bruce Nauman).
November 15 – Katy Siegel, contributing editor for Artforum and professor of art history at Hunter College, CUNY, discusses her recent book, Since ’45: America and the Making of Contemporary Art, a fairly theoretical study of how temporal discontinuity figured in the understanding of art during that period ... and was essentially based on reading American art criticism and related writing in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.—Katy Siegel in an interview with Phong Bui, Brooklyn Rail.
* A book signing in conjunction with the publication of Siegel’s recent book, Since ’45: America and the Making of Contemporary Art, will precede the lecture.
