At a time when many are more familiar than ever with their domestic surroundings, three painters with exhibitions at Kasmin and David Zwirner in New York, and the Serpentine in London, engender lessons in close looking. Drawing formal comparisons between works of still life spanning over 100 years, this panel will explore how Jane Freilicher, Giorgio Morandi, and Jennifer Packer have pursued a most traditional genre in uniquely radical ways.
Joining moderator Dr Matthew Holman are Melissa Blanchflower, Curator at the Serpentine, who organized Jennifer Packer’s exhibition The Eye Is Not Satisfied With Seeing; Eric Brown, Advisor to the Estate of Jane Freilicher, the New York School painter whose light-swept are on view in Kasmin’s in Parts of a World; and David Leiber, a Partner at David Zwirner where the exhibition Albers & Morandi: Never Finished went on view through April 3, 2021.
Jane Freilicher: Parts of a World was on view from January 21–March 13, 2021. To view the exhibition click here.
