February 11 – This special Tuesday Evenings presentation features artist David Bates in conversation with Tyler Green for a live-audience taping of an episode of the Modern Art Notes Podcast.
David Bates is the renowned Dallas-based artist whose work is the subject of David Bates, a two-part exhibition presented jointly by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas. Early in his career, Bates attended the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program before completing a Masters of Fine Art at Southern Methodist University and returning to Texas to make his work and build his career. Almost a decade after his return to this region, Bates was included in the prestigious 1987 Whitney Biennial for his renowned ability to capture the essence of his subjects and transport his viewers, qualities still evident in the artist’s materially conscious paintings, drawings, reliefs, and sculptures.
