Duncan Phillips Lecture
The Death of Painting?
Thursday, July 16, 6 pm
Painter Eric Fischl asks whether painting dies when the figure disappears from it, and how concepts of the body presented by artists in different forms and at different times affect the perception and meaning of painting. Fischl’s work is included in Paint Made Flesh. Free for Phillips members; $15 for non-members. Early arrival is recommended, as seating is limited; first come, first served. (Members may confirm their seat by stopping by the lobby of the museum to pick up their free ticket prior to the event.) Information: 202-387-3036
