Join us for an evening-long exploration of the work of “the father of Pop abstraction,” American painter Nicholas Krushenick (1929–1999). Born in the Bronx, Krushenick became a prominent figure on the 1960s and 1970s New York Art scene. His bold, dynamic paintings straddle the lines between the prevailing art movements of that time, most notably Abstract Expressionism and Pop art. For Krushenick, this independent, unclassifiable status was ideal. He said: “They don’t really know where to place me. Like I’m out in Left field all by myself. And that’s just where I want to stay.”
The Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley ‘80.
