In association with the exhibition, The Gravity of Beauty, artist Barbara Takenaga will provide a virtual lecture on her work and her artistic practice on Thursday, November 17, at 7:00 pm. This lecture will be presented via Zoom; please register to receive the meeting details.
Barbara Takenaga is an abstract painter interested in images that can be read as both abstract and representational, microscopic and cosmic. Recent solo exhibitions include DC Moore Gallery in NYC, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha, a 20-year Survey at the Williams College Museum of Art, and wall installations at Space/42 of the Neuberger Museum and Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Her recent 20-year survey was accompanied by an illustrated book, with an essay by curator Debra Bricker Balken and published by Delmonico Prestel in 2017. A 2020 recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship, her work is in many public and private collections. Represented by DC Moore, Robischon Gallery, Pamela Salisbury, and by print publishers Shark’s Ink and Wingate Studio, her work has been reviewed in a variety of publications, including The New York Times, Art in America, The New Yorker, Hyperallergic, and Art Critical. Takenaga lives and works in New York City and was a professor at Williams College for many years.
