Talk | peter campus, Virginia Jaramillo, and John Torreano

In the Lichtenstein Theater & livestreamed

December 10, 6 pm - 7 pm

IN-PERSON   LIVESTREAM

Join us for a special conversation with three seminal East End artists at the height of their creative powers, featured in solo exhibitions this fall. Chief Curator Alicia Longwell will talk with peter campus, Virginia Jaramillo, and John Torreano about their decades-long careers and how their practices intersect.

ABOUT PETER CAMPUS

peter campus (American, b. New York, New York 1937) is a seminal artist in the canons of new media and video art. In a solitary pursuit over the past year, campus positioned his camera around the shores of Shinnecock Bay, not far from his home in Patchogue, NY. The resulting six works, all to be shown in the exhibition, invite the viewer to meditate on the sublime beauty of the natural landscape, while noting the gap between what we perceive, what the camera records, and what the artist brings to the fore in the video.

ABOUT VIRGINIA JARAMILLO

A pioneering minimalist whose career has spanned six decades, Virginia Jaramillo (American, b. El Paso, Texas, 1939) creates work from sources that span history and cross cultures. The exhibition brings together never before seen paintings and drawings completed in her Hampton Bays studio over the past two years. Harmony between Line and Space features two 12-foot canvases, Quantum Entanglement and Quanta, in which expansive fields of color are crisscrossed by impossibly uniform razor-thin lines. “The color field was not negative space,” notes Jaramillo, “but a space filled with life and possibilities.”

ABOUT JOHN TORREANO

With the universe as his muse, New York and Sag Harbor-based artist John Torreano (American, b. Flint, Michigan, 1941) combines realism infused with abstraction to create works that conflate time and space. Often mapping out ideas on paper first and expanding in paintings, Torreano has been inspired by the myriad images recorded by the Hubble Space Telescope to create works that contrast the physical with the illusory
