The privilege of being invited into an artist’s studio is something that many never have a chance to experience. Talismans offers a glimpse into the studios of four New York based painters—Robert Berlind, Susanna Heller, John L. Moore, and Levent Tuncer—by presenting their paintings accompanied by objects and images from their studios. These objects or talismans represent people and things that have influenced and inspired the four. The idea for the exhibition is credited to the photographer John Coplans (also a former museum director, curator, and founding editor of Artforum), who told John L. Moore that he would have liked to organize an exhibition of artists’ bulletin boards, as he was always attracted to what artists chose to keep on view in their studios and how it related to their work.
Closing Reception: Today from 4 - 6 pm
This exhibition was made possible by The Wolf Kahn & Emily Mason Foundation.
