DESCRIPTION

Pamela Alper Associate Curator Julie Rodrigues-Widholm leads a free tour of Belgian artist Luc Tuymans’s retrospective. Considered one of the most significant European painters of his generation, Tuymans uses everything from pop culture to traumatic historical events as his subject matter. His relationship to the medium is influenced by photography, television, and cinema. The show is organized in chronological order, featuring approximately 80 key paintings from 1985 to the present.
