Lectures

Human/Nature Virtual Gallery Talk with Artist Judith Schaechter and Curatorial Manager Laura Burkhalter

4/1/2021 / 6:00pm

“I am known mainly for images of solitary figures—but there was a time I did a lot of crowd scenes—mostly involved in some sort of fight. Not because I am violent but because it is interesting to see human behavior at its worst. It is interesting to see how bodies intertwine in writhing and conflict. I like that Ensor mines the creepy territory of where humor enters the equations—it creates a real disconnect but a grimace is an incredible expression of both agony and ecstasy simultaneously…and it looks really good on clowns.” – Judith Schaechter 

Hear from Laura Burkhalter about her curatorial process for creating companion exhibitions for main gallery shows like The Path to Paradise. In this case, a print gallery exhibition was born from a collaboration with featured artist Judith Schaechter.
