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.
