The Modern Graduate Series aims to foster and sustain a vibrant, creative dialogue among fine arts and art history graduate students from across the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

Spencer Finch has received critical acclaim for his work, which has been included in exhibitions spanning the globe, including an ongoing solo exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC; a 2007 solo exhibition, What Time Is It on the Sun at Mass MoCA in Massachusetts; As if the Sea Should Part and Show Another Sea, a 2009 solo exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane, Australia; and was included in Daniel Birnbaum’s Making Worlds exhibition for the 2009 Venice Biennale. For the biennale catalogue, Birnbaum explained, “Finch’s artworks attempt to re-create his subjective impressions and scientific observations of light and color. His works take many forms, but what unites them is an attempt to transpose culturally significant or privately important moments or sites to a gallery setting.” For Tuesday Evenings, Finch addresses color and his experience with it in Remarks on Color.

Coinciding with the exhibition Vernon Fisher: K-Mart ConceptualismVernon 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.

Gene and Jerry Jones, owners of the Dallas Cowboys, are in conversation with the Modern’s chief curator, Michael Auping. When conceiving the new Cowboys Stadium, the Jones family sought to create more than a football stadium. The idea was to build a twenty-first-century coliseum that would engage not only sports, but architecture, design, technology, and art. One of the most exciting aspects of the building is its inclusion of a world-class collection of contemporary art, many of the works created specifically for the new building. For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Stadium Art, Auping, who was part of the advisory committee for the project, talks with the Joneses about their vision and how it came to fruition.
