April 6 - April 6, 2019, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
How do two artists use their unique practices to approach similar themes? Glass artist Beth Lipman and graphite and charcoal artist Joel Daniel Phillips come together in conversation to discuss their interests and practices, moderated by Sienna Brown, Nancy E. Meinig Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Philbrook Museum of Art. Lipman looks to the historical practice of the Dutch vanitas painting, representing one’s life through the objects with which we surround ourselves, and reinvents it with translucent glass, transporting a standard scene into another realm, frozen in time. Phillips reflects on the laborious process of looking through drawing— a focused journey with one scene or subject to capture it on paper.
Join us Saturday, April 6th, from 4:30-6:00 at 108|Contemporary.
Beth Lipman’s glass works are on display at 108|Contemporary in Beth Lipman: Accidental Vestiges and Joel Daniel Phillips’s work will be exhibited at Philbrook Downtown from February 1- May 19, 2019, in Joel Daniel Phillips: It Felt Like The Future Was Now.
