Who's Afraid of Morris Louis?

THU, NOV 30, 2006 (55:34)

Who’s Afraid of Morris Louis? is an educational program developed by the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center to celebrate their collaboration on two upcoming exhibitions: the High museum’s Morris Louis Now: An American Master Revisited and the response it inspired at the ACAC, Louis Morris. This program examines the work of Morris Louis and the legacy it engendered, specifically issues of painting developed from abstraction in the 1950s and 60s, including performative processes, diverse mediums, color, gesture and scale. The evening begins with a tour of Morris Louis Now, led by Wieland Family Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, Jeffrey Grove and is followed by presentations by artists Karl Erickson, Sarah Bramen, and Phil Grauer, each of whom is featured in the exhibition at the ACAC. The conversation and questions are moderated by ACAC curator Stuart Horodner.
