Join artist Alex Da Corte and David Breslin, DeMartini Family Curator and Director of the Collection and curator of the exhibition Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s, for a conversation about abstraction, color, and optical perception in painting and related media.
Alex Da Corte creates vibrant and immersive large-scale installations that include wall-based works, sculptures, and videos. Colorful and humorous, his work combines personal narrative, art-historical references, pop-culture characters, and the glossy aesthetics of commercial advertising to explore the absurdity and psychological complexity of the images and stories that pervade contemporary American life.
