Description from Whitney Museum:
"This three-part course explores the work of contemporary painters of color who utilize the figure to explore the conceptual. Held in conjunction with the exhibition Jennifer Packer: The Eye is Not Satisfied with Seeing, it offers participants an in-depth view into the fragmented and lush experimental paintings on view.
Considering both the historical movement Romanticism and the post-punk music style of “New Romanticism,” we will examine the ways in which a new generation is turning away from the rational self and towards the interpersonal, the subconscious, and the dreary. Building on the works of artists like Jennifer Packer, Amy Sherald, Salman Toor, and Jordan Casteel, the course will examine how artists understand angst amidst socio-political collapse and complacency to oppressive systems.
