Artist's Talks

Informal presentations by artists.

Tue, Nov 8, 2011 7 PM

Painter Alexis Rockman returns to the Wexner Center to speak about A Fable for Tomorrow, his retrospective exhibition on view in our galleries through December 30.

Alternately startling and humorous, Rockman's acclaimed paintings start with careful observation of the natural world and the intersection of human and animal ecosystems. Rockman, who previously visited the Wexner Center in 2004 and 2010, talks about his development as an artist and the people and places that have inspired his work.

The galleries will be free to the public from 6 to 7 PM. This talk will also be streamed live at wexarts.org/about/live.
