Virtual Artist Talk: Julia Jacquette and Mary Birmingham
October 22 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Please join us for a conversation with Julia Jacquette, FIT Associate Professor and Chair, Fine Arts, Mary Birmingham, a contemporary art curator from the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, on Jacquette’s current exhibition at The Alpha Workshops Gallery at 245 W. 29th St., in Manhattan, titled A Very Angry Angel.
The exhibition presents oil paintings from a new series that Jacquette has been developing since 2018. “Throughout many bodies of work, my paintings have given me a way to grapple with the relentless presence of media imagery in our lives, and the pernicious narrative that it promotes,” says Jacquette.
Our special guest, contemporary curator Mary Birmingham, will discuss Jacquette’s compelling imagery, how they are both responding to the current moment, and how they are approaching their work, teaching, and curating.
