Painting Portraits: A Conversation with Jordan Casteel

Tuesday, April 6, 2021, 5 PM

Tickets: Free; limited availability, advance registration is required.

In conjunction with the exhibition David Hockney: Drawing from Life, join New York City-based artist Jordan Casteel for a conversation on the theme of portraiture with Isabelle Dervaux, Acquavella Curator of Modern of Contemporary Drawings. Casteel has rooted her practice in community engagement, painting from her own photographs of people she encounters. Posing her subjects within their natural environments, she creates nearly life-size portraits in which she transcends personal observation to convey the human experience.

Please note that the program will take place online. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to participate using Zoom. We ask that you download the app in advance for the best user experience.
