MATRIX 30th Anniversary Program
Michael Auping was the first MATRIX curator, directing the program
from 1978 to 1980. Auping will be in conversation with Susan
Rothenberg, one of three artists in the first MATRIX rotation (MATRIX
3). Rothenberg’s expressive figurative paintings of the late 1970s
were an important bellwether for the turn towards painting that
followed the cool dominance of minimalism and conceptual art. Over the
years, from her iconic horse paintings to more recent explorations of
daily life, Rothenberg has pursued an individual course of painting
with an abiding interest in surface and tactility that mines both
abstraction and representation. Michael Auping is currently chief
curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Part of the MATRIX
30th Anniversary celebration.
