ABOUT THE EVENT
Robert Lehman Distinguished Lecture: An Evening with Neil Jenney, in conversation with Douglas Dreishpoon
Join Douglas Dreishpoon, art historian, curator, author and educator, in conversation with Neil Jenney, as he explores questions that reflect on Jenney’s unique status and impressive career.
Neil Jenney has forged his own path outside prevailing art trends over the last 50 years. His “Bad Paintings” from 1969–70 “established precedents for the art of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.” (Roberta Smith, New York Times art critic). His current work refers to the romantic painters of the Hudson River School, notions of Manifest Destiny, and the degradation of the American landscape.
Dreishpoon is Chief Curator Emeritus at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York, and currently Director of the Catalogue Raisonné Project at the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation in New York City. His essays, interviews, and critical reviews have appeared in numerous exhibition catalogues, magazines, and journals, including Art in America, Art Journal, and Art News.
