Thiebaud Endowed Lecture: David Salle

November 1, 2018 @ 4:30 pm


Time: 04:30 pm – 06:00 pm
Location: Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

David Salle will give the fourth annual Betty Jean and Wayne Thiebaud Endowed Lecture.

Salle was part of a group of young, so-called neo-expressionist artists who became art stars in the 1980s. His collage-like paintings feature overlapping imagery from a variety of sources —including popular magazines and art history — layering figures and patterns into colorful compositions rendered in a straightforward, uncomplicated style.

Salle has had solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; MoMA Vienna; Menil Collection, Houston; and Tel Aviv Museum of Art. His art is in collections around the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

In the early 1980s, he began designing sets and costumes for ballets and operas. He also writes regularly for Art in America, Modern Painters and The Paris Review and recently became the first visual artist to write for The New York Times Review of Books.

This event is sponsored by Betty Jean and Wayne Thiebaud.
