Contemporary Perspectives on Francis Picabia

Watch full recording of talk here.

Marcel Duchamp once described Francis Picabia’s career as a “kaleidoscopic series of art experiences.” Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Francis Picabia: Our Heads Are Round so Our Thoughts Can Change Direction, this panel explores key aspects of Picabia’s wide-ranging body of work and its significance for artists working today. Participating artists include Peter Fischli, Rashid Johnson, Laura Owens, and Lisa Yuskavage. Moderated by Anne Umland, exhibition curator and The Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller Curator of Painting and Sculpture, MoMA.

Tickets ($15; $10 members and Corporate Members; $5 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, at the Film desk after 4:00 p.m., or at the Education and Research Building reception desk on the day of the program.

Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis – Artist Talk: Lisa Yuskavage

Watch full recording of talk here.

Following the opening of spring exhibitions on Friday, January 15, Lisa Yuskavage will be joined by Chief Curator Jeffrey Uslip for a conversation about her practice as a figurative painter.

Yuskavage’s exhibition at CAM, The Brood, presents twenty-five years of the artist’s work, espousing her bold vision for contemporary figurative painting. The Brood is Yuskavage’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States in over fifteen years, comprising key paintings that chart her emergence in the early 1990s to the present. Merging the grand tradition of portraiture with the expansive vocabulary of female transgression and empowerment, Yuskavage’s sensuous palette and confrontational subject matter provoke the imagination and create a sometimes polarizing space: the artist presents the female body as a site of defiance and decadence.
