Tomorrow (July 29), the Hammer Museum hosts “His Broken Lines,” a panel discussion on the late artist and CalArts alumnus Tony Greene (Art MFA 87), as part of its Made in L.A. biennial.
Greene’s body of work—paintings which explore desire, mortality and the corporeal amidst the AIDS crisis—is currently featured in a Made in L.A. show-within-a-show titled Amid Voluptuous Calm and in Room of Advances, a retrospective at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture.
Moderated by David Frantz, curator of Tony Greene: Amid Voluptuous Calm, Tuesday’s discussion centers around the politics of queer art production in Los Angeles from the late 80s to the early 90s and the stakes for queer curatorial and artistic practice as they relate to Greene’s work.
Artists and CalArts faculty members Matias Viegener and Millie Wilson, artist and curator Monica Majoli, and Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive director Lawrence Rinder join the panel.
