“It’s only paint. Nobody’s getting hurt here.”
-Lisa Yuskavage, Q&A at Contemporary Art Museum (St. Louis)
I took a handful of students to the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis. CAM is currently showing a collection of paintings by Lisa Yuskavage. The students got excited about her work, which was helpful because that meant we had some solid (but spontaneous) discussions at the show.
What’s more, they put her artist talk online today!
I have a lot to say about this show, but I think I’ll absorb a little longer first.
