Nicola Vassell is a curator, art writer, and currently a director of Deitch Projects in New York. For this Tuesday Evenings lecture, Vassell presents DARK ART: A New Conversation with Abstraction, in which she proposes that “a new and grittier form of abstraction permits us to theorize that a younger generation of painters, consciously or not, is producing ruggedly electric paintings that tell somber and vicious tales . . . making a statement on the sociopolitical inevitability of a world gone mad.”

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.
