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.

FINAL WEEKEND: The Museum and KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS will be open Friday, January 20 and Saturday, January 21 from 10 am until 8 pm, and Sunday, January 22 from 10 am until 5 pm.
