Deborah Kass and Robert Storr, Before and Happily Ever After

Curator and critic Robert Storr joins artist Deborah Kass for a wide ranging informal conversation at the Library in January 2013. This event occurred on the occasion of the publication of the monograph Deborah Kass: Before and Happily Ever After (Skira Rizzoli 2012) in conjunction with her mid-career retrospective exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The two art world veterans discuss art, life, politics and music. Expect the unexpected. Curator Arezoo Moseni provides the introduction.

The Kass monograph spans the artist's nearly four-decade career, from her early landscape paintings, to her provocative Art History series, through the Warhol Project, and to her paintings of the last decade, "feel good paintings for feel bad times".

Robert Storr is a curator, writer, and Dean of the Yale School of Art. From 1990 to 2002 he was Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art. He was the director of the 52nd Venice Biennale International Art Exhibition in 2007

This event was organized and hosted by Arezoo Moseni as part of her Artist Dialogues Series, an open forum for understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. Artists are paired with critics, curators, gallerists, writers or other artists to converse about art and the potential of exploring new ideas.
