Live-Stream Talk: Alicia Longwell in Conversation with Jim Dine

FRIDAY NIGHTS LIVE!

November 6, 5 pm - 6 pm

Parrish collection artist Jim Dine (American, born 1935) discusses his work in Field of Dreams and new projects with Chief Curator Alicia Longwell in an online live-stream.

Internationally renowned Parrish Art Museum collection artist Jim Dine (American, born 1935), whose work is on view in the Museum’s outdoor exhibition Field of Dreams, will participate in a live stream illustrated talk with Alicia G. Longwell, Ph.D., The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator on Friday, November 6, 5pm. A visionary who was a pioneer of the Happenings movement and integral to the development of Pop art in the 1960s, Dine will discuss The Hooligan and The Wheatfield (Agincourt), as well as current projects and the trajectory of his 60-year career.

In his work throughout the decades, Dine frequently affixed to his canvases everyday objects—largely his personal possessions—such as tools, rope, shoes, clothing, and even a bathroom sink. He later added gates, trees, and Venus de Milo to his repertoire of recurring motifs, as exemplified in The Wheatfield (Agincourt), 1989-2019. It expands Dine’s scope into a monumental assemblage comprising an extensive tractor axle fitted with the objects and icons that have populated his life’s work, including farm tools, oars, animal statuary, furniture, and toys. For this new iteration at the Parrish, Dine extended the framework of the axle and added new found objects. Several iterations of the Venus de Milo—a characteristic trademark of the artist’s practice since the late 1970s—appear in The Wheatfield, and provide the sole inspiration of The Hooligan (2019), on view for the first time.

In New York, he exhibited at Judson Gallery (1958 and 1959), had his first solo show the Reuben Gallery in 1960, and was part of many other exhibitions nationwide since that time.

Guggenheim Museum, New York (1999); the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (1984–85), and National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. (2004).

In 1965, Dine was a guest lecturer at Yale University, artist-in-residence at Oberlin College, Ohio, and a visiting critic at Cornell University a year later. The artist, who attended the University of Cincinnati, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Ohio University, Athens (BFA, 1957) lives in New York, Paris, and Walla Walla, Washington.
