Vernon Fisher

Coinciding with the exhibition Vernon Fisher: K-Mart Conceptualism, Vernon Fisher discusses the issues at stake in his work of the last 30 years with Dr. Frances Colpitt, an art historian, critic, author, and the Deedie Potter Rose Chair of Art History at Texas Christian University. This Tuesday Evenings presentation is a continuation of the dialogue Fisher and Colpitt have pursued since 2008, in conjunction with Colpitt’s analysis of Fisher’s work in the context of postmodernism. Colpitt’s essay appears in the new monograph Vernon Fisher, recently published by the University of Texas Press. With 256 pages and 144 color plates, the book also includes an interview with the artist by the Modern’s chief curator, Michael Auping.
