Next up in the SVA Short Takes series is artist Dana Schutz discussing the different ways paintings can be interpreted, using her own work as examples, in this short video excerpted from her March 2016 talk.
Best known for her wildly expressive figures, Schutz has had solo exhibitions at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin; Museo d’Arte Moderna e Contemoranea di Trento e Roverto, Italy; Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland; and the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts, among others. Her work is part of the collections at the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, among others. Schutz is represented by Petzel Gallery in New York and Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin.
