PaintersNYC Panel Discussion Featuring Inka Essenhigh

May 19, 2016

Curatorial Intensive alumna Meaghan Kent and co-curator & Artist Maureen Cavanaugh will moderate a panel discussion with artists Inka Essenhigh, Clare Grill, and Eamon Ore-Giron Thursday, May 19, 2016, 6:30–8pm. The event will take place at the ICI Curatorial Hub, 401 Broadway, Suite 1620 and is free and open to the public.

The participating speakers will discuss their studio practices as painters in New York City. The panel coincides with the exhibition PaintersNYC, which focuses on the general shifts and styles currently found in New York, while also examining its historical roots. The painters in this exhibition comprise a newer generation of established and emerging artists, who are part of a larger community of artists based in New York that often engage with each other with concerns over space, politics and culture.

The panel will include PaintersNYC curators Meaghan Kent and Maureen Cavanaugh with Inka Essenhigh, Clare Grill, and Eamon Ore-Giron. It will also include segments from historical interviews by Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel with Lee Krasner, Alice Neel, Robert Rauschenberg, and Alex Katz that were included in the exhibition at el Museo de los Pintores Oaxaqueños, Oaxaca, Mexico.

To attend, please RSVP to with MEAGHAN in the subject line.
