Amy Sillman lecture tonight at SFAI

Monday, November 5
Amy Sillman
Distinguished Visiting Painting Fellow
7:30 pm in the SFAI Lecture Hall
800 Chestnut Street, San Francisco, CA
Free and Open to the public

From the SFAI website:
Foregrounding color and the layering of color in her paintings, Amy Sillman achieves a striking balance of opposites: spontaneity against struggle, intense form against loose improvisation, and childlike imagery against complex psychological implications. Her work has been exhibited at the 2004 Whitney Biennial; the Brooklyn Museum in New York; Susanne Vielmetter in Los Angeles; and New Langton Arts in San Francisco. Her awards include the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in Painting, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, the Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship, and an NEA Fellowship in Painting. In Fall 2007, Sillman will be exhibiting a suite of new prints at Crown Point Press in San Francisco.

I will follow up with my description of the event in the next couple days.

Iona Rozeal Brown - Wednesday, November 7
Patty Chang and David Kelley - Monday, November 12
Pedro Reyes - Wednesday, November 14
