During Napa Valley's Arts in April, we celebrate our favorite pairing, wine and art, with an exploration of winery art installations, special tastings, and exclusive artist events.
Janet Bishop will explore the blurring of mediums in contemporary art, and look, in particular, at work that takes its strength from both photography and painting.
Focusing on works from the Hess Collection and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), as well as other key examples, the talk will address art ranging from paintings by Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, Vija Celmins and Robert Bechtle, which take newspaper images or snapshots as starting points, to lens-based works by Yasumasa Morimura, Jeff Wall, and Sam Taylor-Wood that reference 19th-Century painting. Bishop will also provide a glimpse into the new SFMOMA, which opens in 2016.
Reservations are limited.
