Art & Culture Lecture: David Salle

Tuesday, December 7, 7:30 pm

Don’t miss tomorrow night’s lecture by David Salle, an American painter who helped define the post-modern sensibility by combining figuration with an extremely varied pictorial language.
David Salle, Angels in the Rain, 1998,
oil and acrylic on canvas, 244 x 335
Major exhibitions of his work have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Castello di Rivoli (Torino, Italy), and the Guggenheim Bilbao. In March 2009 a group of fifteen paintings were shown at the Kestnergesellschaft Museum in Hannover, Germany. That same year Salle's work was also featured in an exhibition titled "The Pictures Generation" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in which his work was shown amongst a number of his contemporaries.

All lectures are free and open to the public!
