David Diao on Barnett Newman

535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor. 212 989 5566
Opens: 02/04/13, Closes: 02/04/13

As his painted catalogue raisonne of Barnett Newman seen in the recent Hunter College exhibition, Conceptual Abstraction, amply demonstrates, David Diao has looked at the oeuvre of said abstract expressionist master with almost totemic intensity. Thus he is a natural for Dia’s Artists on Artists Lecture Series. February 4, 2013 at 6:30 PM. $6 general admission; $3 Dia members, students, and seniors Advance ticket purchases recommended.
