Join us for a discussion with LA artist Richard Jackson, whose work seeks to extend the potential of paint through performative processes. Jackson will be in conversation with Italian conceptual artist Piero Golia, whose interest in the possibilities of theater will lend to the discourse of Jackson’s expressive painterly practice. Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles has installed a special viewing room of Jackson’s work on the occasion of the talk.
This event is free, however, reservations are required. Click here to RSVP.
