Jasper Johns: Gray Uncensored
In conjunction with “Jasper Johns: Gray,” a major exhibit opening this February at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a group of internationally renown scholars and curators gather to speak on a widely suppressed topic: the import of Johns’ sexuality and its role in his art. Participants include Thomas Crow, formerly Director of the Getty Research Institute at the Getty Center and currently the Rosalie Solow Chair in Modern Art History at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, New York; Jonathan D. Katz, Clark-Oakley Fellow at the Clark Art Institute and author of the first scholarly article exploring the Johns/Rauschenberg relationship and Seth McCormack, a recently completed Columbia PhD now a fellow at the Yale University Art Museum. Moderated by James Saslow, Professor of Renaissance Art and Theater, The Graduate Center, CUNY. Co-sponsored by The PhD Program in Art History and made possible by the generous support of the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation.
