FOCUS: Jules de Balincourt

Cocktail reception and artist talk

Brooklyn-based artist Jules de Balincourt is known for his expressive, radiantly colored paintings that vary distinctly in style, size, and theme. Through subject matter such as cityscapes and present-day genre scenes, his work often evokes notions of American utopia and dystopia, politics, and various societal groups. De Balincourt works on up to ten paintings at a time without sketches or source materials, and he considers them chapters—symbiotic, yet independent, darting between abstraction and representation.

Nov 21 2014 - 5:30pm

The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.
