Jack Flam and Judith Stein in Conversation at The Judd Foundation

Jack Flam, President and CEO of the Dedalus Foundation, and Judith Stein, author of the cultural biography, Eye of the Sixties, Richard Bellamy and the Transformation of Modern Art, will discuss Donald Judd and Yayoi Kusama within the context of the artists shown at Green Gallery between 1960 and 1965. Founded and operated by Richard Bellamy at 15 West 57th Street, the gallery was important for Judd, Kusama, and many of their contemporaries. While Bellamy exhibited work by both artists, Judd’s first introduction to the space was as an art critic, in which he reviewed shows in the space beginning in 1960.

Tickets are free and available beginning late September.

An illustrated talk and reading by Judith Stein at the 92nd Street YMCA.

Judith Stein will discuss her book, Eye of The Sixties: Richard Bellamy and The Transformation of Modern Art. 

Journey back to the early sixties, to the beginning of the market for contemporary art in New York, when the art dealer and tastemaker Richard Bellamy (1927-98) made history but chose not to make money. At the fabled Green Gallery on Fifty-Seventh Street, Bellamy launched the careers of today’s iconic Pop, Op and conceptual artists, mavericks and minimalists, Claes Oldenburg and James Rosenquist, Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, Mark di Suvero and George Segal. Join Judith Stein as she brings alive a posterity-averse beatnik with a legendary eye, a tale that unfolds as postmodernism elbowed the past aside. Join her for this illustrated talk and reading.

Location: YMCA, Lexington Avenue at 92nd St. NYC.

Venue: Classroom

A lecture by Judith Stein at the National Art School, Sydney, Australia - POSTPONED

Join Judith at the National Art School Australia as part of their lunchtime lecture series. Judith will present her recent publication, Eye of the Sixties, Richard Bellamy and the Transformation of Modern Art, the first biography of one of the twentieth century’s most influential and enigmatic art dealers, Dick Bellamy.

At the Green Gallery on Fifty-Seventh Street, NY, Bellamy launched the careers of today’s iconic Pop, Op and conceptual artists, mavericks and minimalists, including Yayoi Kusama and Yoko Ono, Claes Oldenburg and James Rosenquist, Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, Mark di Suvero and George Segal.

Bellamy was a beatnik with a legendary eye, an arbiter of the counterculture movement, operating at the very beginnings of the market for contemporary art. Published in July 2016, Eye of the Sixties is the result of two decades of research and hundreds of interviews with Bellamy’s artists, friends, colleagues and lovers in order to recover the history of this elusive art dealer.

Judith comes to Australia after an extensive US tour. She will present an illustrated talk at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation on Thursday 20 April, 6-8pm.
