ERIC FISCHL AND STEPHEN SHORE
IN CONVERSATION WITH
Wednesday, June 19, at 7 pm.
5900 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles.
On the occasion of Eric Fischl’s first local gallery exhibition of new paintings in twenty-five years and Stephen Shore’s first Los Angeles show in nearly fifteen, Sprüth Magers presents the artists in conversation with LACMA curator Britt Salvesen. Fischl and Shore are two of the most celebrated American artists to have emerged in the later twentieth century. Each has respectively altered the language of painting and photography through their groundbreaking approaches to composition, color, light and texture. Their imagery has left an indelible mark not only on subsequent generations of artists, but also on the way we understand the physical and metaphorical peaks and valleys of the American experience. Fischl often builds his scenes using photographic elements, and the structures of Shore’s compositions have sometimes been articulated through the lens of painting, despite the mediums’ obvious differences. The artists will discuss their individual approaches in a wide-ranging conversation led by Britt Salvesen.
