On Wednesday 13th June at 6 pm, The Art Barge will host the first of this season’s ARTISTS SPEAK. Judith Hudson will discuss her art and process, personal and professional history, and current topics related to her most recent work in an informal conversation with fellow artist Lucy Winton. Hudson and Winton share various interests, ideas, and aesthetics so that a lively dialogue on art and social issues will take place, particularly with regard to the work Hudson is currently exhibiting in Under the Covers at Tripoli Gallery: how she arrived at this material, content, and place in her work.
A brief reception will follow the talk.
Advance ticket purchase is recommended due to limited capacity.
Tickets are $20 / $18 Friends
ARTISTS SPEAK began in the summer of 1983 when Howard Kanovitz, artist and trustee of The Victor D’Amico Institute of Art, organized the first talks and arranged with Fraser Dougherty and his newly formed public access television company, LTV, to film the events. The inaugural series was held at The Neighborhood House in East Hampton and included Jimmy Ernst, Howard Kanovitz, Elaine de Kooning, Larry Rivers, and Syd Solomon. It proved to be a popular art event, filling the space for each talk. Its success propelled a move in 1986 to the larger more centrally located space of the East Hampton Middle School auditorium in the village of East Hampton, where the series was presented through 1988. The series was revived in 2013 as a mid-week evening event held on-site at The Art Barge on the shore of Napeague Harbor in Amagansett. LTV continues to film the talks and a complete video collection to date is archived at the LTV Studios, a selection of which is available online through ltveh.org.
