Dia director Philippe Vergne will be giving this month's Gallery Talk at Dia:Beacon on Andy Warhol on Saturday May 30 at 1pm. To reserve yourself a spot for the talk, call 845.440.0100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's the gallery talk schedule for the next several months, as listed on Dia:Beacon's website:
I, for one am very pleased to see that Kenneth Goldmsith is returning in October to speak on Sol LeWitt. Goldsmith's talk on Warhol back in November of 2008 was a major treat. Of course, Steven Evans is no slouch in giving a gallery talk either. I've attended at least two of his talks, on Warhol and LeWitt.
I don't know how these speakers for the talks are programmed, but if anyone involved in that process is reading, I'd certainly cast a vote for the return of Norton Batkin. His manner of delivery of a talk on Bruce Nauman was animated, a bit ribald and very edifying....it also had a group participation component. I'd like to see him go at it with one of the other artists....perhaps Blinky.
