Daniel Maidman : Making room for special projects
Open to the public; up to 40 seats
Eventbrite RSVP required
About the Event
Artist Daniel Maidman discusses his “special projects” – art done in a spirit of play and experimentation, which is technically and aesthetically different from his better-known figurative work. Maidman compares the two ways of working, and explains how the special projects lend vitality to his primary work and expand his themes and imagery. How does he approach “doing art that isn’t the art that you do”?
