March 24, 2009

Donald Sultan is one of the leading American contemporary still life artists, known for his large–scale, “catastrophic-event” paintings that incorporate nontraditional materials such as Dead Plant, November 1, 1988, as well as his sensuous charcoal drawings of iconic presentations and abstract depictions of fruit such as Black Lemons, May 20, 1985, both in the Modern’s collection. For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Sultan shares details of his 30-year career as found in the recently published monograph, Donald Sultan: The Theater of the Object.
