Online Opening Lecture: Andrew Forge: The Limits of Sight

September 24, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Please join us for the opening night lecture for “Andrew Forge: The Limits of Sight,” with exhibition curator Karen Wilkin, on Thursday, September 24th at 4 p.m.

Curated by scholar and guest curator Karen Wilkin, the exhibition will feature over twenty-five paintings and works on paper by British artist Andrew Forge (1923-2002). Forge was a painter and an influential art critic, as well professor and then the dean of the Yale University School of Art from 1975-1994. His highly personal abstractions distill his perceptions of place, season, and time of day into subtle orchestrations of pure color. Lenders to the exhibition include numerous private collections, the artist’s widow Ruth Miller, and the collections of the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art.

This event is part of the Edwin L. Weisl, Jr. Lectureships in Art History, funded by the Robert Lehman Foundation.
