Conversation with artist Vija Celmins

The Menil Collection

Co-organized by the Menil Collection and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Vija Celmins: Television and Disaster, 1964-66 explores this essential yet often overlooked period of the artist's work. The nearly 20 paintings and three sculptures in the exhibition are marked by a distinct tone influenced by the violence of the era and the mass media that represented it. Join artist Vija Celmins and curators Franklin Sirmans and Michelle White in conversation at this free public program. 

Vija Celmins: Television and Disaster, 1964-66 is on view through Feb. 20, 2011.
