Join Curator Amy L. Powell for a free, guided tour of A Question of Emphasis: Louise Fishman Drawing titled "Queer Uses of Abstraction."

Louise Fishman’s lifelong dedication to abstract painting engages processes that we might understand as feminist and queer. The exhibition is organized by some of these, including transfers, grids, flat folds, curves, and “expressions.” This curator’s tour offers a close look at Fishman’s conversations with abstraction, process, and identity. Audiences will gain or deepen an understanding of how abstraction addresses queer history and community.

Please note: Space is limited to 20 people. Tickets are required to attend this event.
