Bringing together contemporary artists, curators, and critics, the Daniel P. Paduano & Janet W. Prindle Lecture Series provides a forum for vital conversations inspired by the Neuberger Museum of Art’s artists, exhibitions, and permanent collection.
Deborah Kass & Eric Shiner in Conversation will feature artist Deborah Kass and Eric Shiner, now SVP of Sotheby’s Fine Art Division and former director of the Andy Warhol Museum, in a discussion about the artist’s work and recent wallpaper installation Day After Day, 2016, at the Neuberger Museum of Art SPACE | 42 in Manhattan.
Day after Day, a large-scale digital print commissioned by the Neuberger Museum, is Kass’s first wallpaper work. Inspired, in part, by Warhol’s signature Cow (1966) and Mao (1974) wallpaper, this piece marks an exciting new direction in her practice. The site-specific work is based on one of her favorite paintings, a 2010 canvas from her series more! feel good paintings for feel bad times.
Kass combines references to postwar painting, language, and music to explore the relationships among art history, popular culture, politics, and the self. Her work, which often incorporates phrases from Broadway musicals, the movies, and Yiddish, is imbued with a sense of nostalgia for midcentury American optimism and the aspirations of the middle class. Kass may pair the lyrics of Stephen Sondheim or tunes from the Great American Songbook with the painting styles of such artists as Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, Jackson Pollock, or Frank Stella to create works celebrating the rise of pop culture and fine art in the last century.
