Artist Studio: Barbara Kasten — On Blueness
September 26, 2020 1:00 pm
Join EXPO CHICAGO Artistic Director and author Stephanie Cristello for this intimate conversation with renowned Chicago-based artist Barbara Kasten. Working for over 40 years, Kasten often uses mirrors, lights, and props for conceptually-based pieces that are inspired by the act of recording a three-dimensional space onto a two-dimensional plane. Spanning her work with cyanotypes, and delving into the artist’s lesser-known projects since the 1960s through the lens of the color blue, this talk will focus on the materials and architectures explored in the upcoming book Barbara Kasten: Architecture and Film (2015–2020) published by Skira in 2021 with support from the Graham Foundation.
