TALK: Alexander Nemerov and Clifford Ross on Helen Frankenthaler

August 23, 6 pm - 7:30 pm

 

Join a conversation between art historian Alexander Nemerov, who is working on a new book about Frankenthaler, and Clifford Ross, Chairman of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation.

Alexander Nemerov is the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities as well as Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University. A scholar of American art, Alexander Nemerov writes about the presence of art, the recollection of the past, and the importance of the humanities in our lives today. Committed to teaching the history of art more broadly as well as topics in American visual culture—the history of American photography, for example—he is a noted writer and speaker on the arts. His most recent books are Silent Dialogues: Diane Arbus and Howard Nemerov (2015), Wartime Kiss: Visions of the Moment in the 1940s (2013) and Acting in the Night: Macbeth and the Places of the Civil War (2010).

Clifford Ross is a multi-media artist whose work has been widely exhibited in galleries, museums, and public spaces in the United States and abroad including a solo exhibition “Light | Waves” at the Parrish Art Museum in 2017. His work is in many collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.  Ross has recently written an essay about artist Jay DeFeo for The Jay DeFeo Foundation and is currently working on an updated edition of his anthology “Abstract Expressionism: Creators and Critics” (Abrams, 1990).
