Event Details
Event Title:Artist Talk with Dean Fleming (More Information)
Event Description:

Grids and Geography presents Dean Fleming’s stunning 4×4-inch gouache studies from his 1964 journey from Morocco to the Greek island of Lesbos. Not only are these artworks remarkable demonstrations of abstract color painting in the 1960s, they also chronicle a moment in cultural history when an artist could hitchhike freely across North Africa on an adventure that would be impossible today.

Fleming will discuss his travels and how these small gouaches became the basis for subsequent larger, spatially complex paintings later shown at the Park Place Gallery in New York City.

Presented in collaboration with the Department of Art and Art History.
