Unsentimental Education: Lisa Yuskavage and Jarrett Earnest

Tuesday, February 25 / 7:00 PM

McNally Jackson / 4 Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038

In his text for the new monograph Lisa Yuskavage: Babie Brood Jarrett Earnest analyzes the artist’s early education, both in art schools and life experiences, setting the stage for a lifetime of painting. Their relationship sparked in 2014 when Yuskavage dropped in on Earnest’s class “Object Lessons” at the Bruce High Quality Foundation, the now closer experimental free art school in the east village. They swiftly became friends and collaborators, embarking on a multi-year interview project. To celebrate this new publication, Yuskavage and Earnest will discuss the dynamics of education for artists, their shared interest in psychoanalysis and how it relates to writing and painting, and the role of narrative within art, memory, and history.
