Luc Tuymans: A Conversation

Menil Collection

Luc Tuymans is known for his distinctive painting style as well as for his choice of historically and emotionally charged subject matter. Through 30 paintings in his new Menil exhibition Nice, the Belgian artist derives his images from such pre-existing sources as photographs and film stills.

Menil director Josef Helfenstein and Menil curator Toby Kamps will talk with Luc Tuymans about his portraiture work, with additional attention to works he chose from the museum's permanent holdings to include in the show.
