Curatorial Talks: Kori Newkirk and Terry R. Myers

@ Mana Contemporary


Opening Thursday, August 13th, from 12PM - 1PM

Online Event

Join Terry R. Myers in conversation with LA-based contemporary artist Kori Newkirk, whose practice and body of work center around ideas of dynamic conceptual space, science, history, and socio-economic truths. Newkirk transforms everyday materials into artwork that illuminates aspects of human existence. Myers and Newkirk will discuss the artist’s studio practice, and past and future projects. After the talk, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the discussion.

Los Angeles-based writer and independent curator Terry R. Myers is an editor-at-large of the Brooklyn Rail. His most recent curatorial project was the survey exhibition, Candida Alvarez: Here, at the Chicago Cultural Center. Myers has held faculty positions at institutions including Art Center College of Design, Otis College of Art and Design, Pratt Institute, the Royal College of Art, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he was chair of painting and drawing.

Kori Newkirk is known for the tension he creates between the narrative weight of his materials and larger strategies of formal abstraction. The artist has mounted solo and group exhibitions internationally, including at the Fabric Workshop, Philadelphia; ICA, London; LAXART, Los Angeles; and the Whitney Museum, New York. His survey exhibition, Kori Newkirk 1997–2007 traveled from the Studio Museum in Harlem to the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Newkirk will be honored at the 2020 Orange County Museum of Art Gala.
