Seminar 1 ARTIST ASKING QUESTIONS with Zachary Keeting

In 2010, Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting began visiting artists’ studios. With an unscripted, documentary/ improvisational approach, they talked with a wide array of artists and recorded the results. Gorky’s Granddaughter would go on to become the largest, most substantial, video archive of contemporary artistic dialogue. Over 400 artist interviews are now online, free to watch. It is an experiment in radical generosity. It is also a document of a friendship. Zachary Keeting discusses this endeavor and his own painting practice. Held in GAS studio, 3rd floor

Seminar 2 PAINTED BOOKS, FROM THE DARK AGES to the DIGITAL AGE with James Lancel McElhinney

From the Book of Kells to the Tres Riches Heures, artists painted in book form. Illuminated manuscripts largely disappeared with the invention of the printing press and moveable type. At the same time, explorers began to navigate unknown waters around Africa to Asia and the across the Atlantic to the Americas, drawing maps, depicting new terrain, peoples, flora and fauna. Watercolor painting was the most portable medium. By the 19th century what once had been a medium for mapmakers and naturalists was embraced by studio artists. 21st-century digital technology revolutionized the printing industry. Books and newspapers migrated into personal electronic devices, which in turn has breathed new life back into the lost art of book illumination. The page spread is the new canvas, which can be scanned and published to vast audiences via websites and social media. Journal-artist, author and Pollock-Krasner Grant recipient James Lancel McElhinney will unfold the epic story of painted books, from the Dark Ages to the Digital Age. Held in GAS gallery, 2nd floor.

Seminar 3 PUBLIC RELATIONS, PRIVATE DEALS: MARY CASSATT and the MARKET for IMPRESSIONISM in AMERICA
with Laura D, Corey (Metropolitan Museum of Art)

This lecture will cover the course of nearly fifty years, from the outset of her affiliation with the Impressionists until the end of her life, Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) was an indefatigable and enterprising advocate for the art of her circle. She inspired some of the first American buyers of Impressionist pictures and ultimately had a hand in exporting hundreds of works of art to public and private collections in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and beyond. Held in GAS gallery, 2nd floor.
