DESCRIPTION

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.
