David Getsy and Lin Hixson in conversation:
“Confronting the Canvas: Gesture, Performance, and Gender”
6pm, 4/16, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
Art historian David Getsy and performance artist Lin Hixson discuss the ways in which artists in Destroy the Picture: Painting the Void, 1949–1962 responded to their confrontation with the blank space of the canvas. Focusing on material gesture and bodily engagement, they examine how gender factored into their destructive acts of creation.
