AFA ArtTalks 2010-2011

ArtTalks, the American Federation of the Art's lecture series, features notable figures in the art world.

On Tuesday, January 18, 2011, artist Donald Sultan presented his work in an engaging talk in which he discussed his palette, process, and his fascination with the quotidian objects he portrays in his innovative, large-scale paintings.

Internationally recognized for his painting, printmaking, and sculpture, Donald Sultan is best known for his sensual, large-scale paintings and monochromatic prints that incorporate images of lemons, flowers, dominoes, and other ordinary objects. At once representational and abstract, these works are rendered through an innovative use of unlikely materials such as linoleum, tar, vinyl, spackle, and Masonite.

In the past year, ArtTalks has presented talks by Donald Sultan, David Salle, Will Cotton, Fred Tomaselli, and Ghada Amer.

The American Federation of Arts (AFA) is pleased to announce that artist Richard Phillips will be giving the second ArtTalk of 2011, to be held at Christie’s on Wednesday, March 9, at 6:30 p.m. In-kind support for ArtTalks is provided by Christie’s.
