Gallery Conversation » The Beyond Artist, Pearl C. Hsuing
Join artist Pearl C. Hsuing, featured in The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe & Contemporary Art, for a conversation on her artwork in the temporary exhibition. Drawing on her landscape-painting predecessors who were concerned with depicting the power of the natural terrain, Hsiung’s work extends this interest into new territory, creating a stylized world in which the typical rules of nature need not apply. No longer imagined as just an image, but freestanding in the gallery, the epic cliffs become livable and experiential. Guests are able to walk around the painting, revealing an unfinished back side, reiterating that this towering landscape comes not from nature, but from some recess of the artist’s mind.
Space is limited; please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early.
The Gallery Conversation is free, but a ticket to the exhibition is required: $10 (Free for members and youth ages 18 and under), available at Guest Services or https://crystalbridges.org/okeeffe
