On Monday, March 21, Hyperallergic editor Hrag Vartanian will join renowned critic and curator Karen Wilkin for a lively conversation about the work of six important artists — Susanna Heller, Ted Partin, William Powhida, Sean Scully, Robert Taplin and Summer Wheat.
The event is a fundraiser for the Triangle Arts Association, which is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support emerging and mid-career international and national visual artists, encouraging dialogue and experimentation through workshops, residencies and exhibition opportunities.
If you are in the New York area, please join us for a special evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and a lively conversation with Karen and Hrag as they discuss art, art works and “what they like.”
Tickets are $150 and the event will take place at the midtown Manhattan restaurant, Beacon.
