Art Distilled: An Evening Art Discussion With Themed Cocktails – Dates

June 8: What’s with all the nudes?

Tracing back to the classical ideal of Ancient Greece, the nude figure is an enduring subject explored within Western art. We will consider the evolution of this practice through a variety of historic and contemporary artworks including exhibited works by Simone Pignoni and Philip Pearlstein.

July 13: Why are there so many isms?

“Isms” refers to the various styles and movements in art, often in association with the trajectory of Western modern art. Think: Impressionism, Expressionism, Dadaism, Surrealism, the list trails on. Though a well-established organizational strategy, isms may also distract from alternative interpretations of art history. We will approach this topic by first defining a selection of these isms and then tracing their legacy within works exhibited in the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art.

August 10: Who is considered an “outsider” artist?

Intended to encompass self-taught artists and those whose style, subject matter, or process does not cohere to the mainstream, the boundaries that distinguish “outsider” art are elusive. The term has also been problematized by critics for its potential to further ostracize visionary artists from institutional acceptance. We will connect our discussion of outsider art to exhibited works by Purvis Young.
