Join the Houston Seminar and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, for a pop-up virtual tour of Philip Guston Now, with distinguished curator Alison de Lima Greene. De Lima Greene will take us on a deep dive into the first retrospective of the influential artist’s work in nearly two decades, features paintings, prints, and drawings—both well-known and rarely seen—from public and private collections. Subscribers will have the chance to participate in a Q&A following the tour.
This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from de Lima Greene, the Isabel Brown Wilson Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art. In this virtual tour, she will shed light on a selection of works in the exhibition, giving subscribers a unique, insider’s look at the breadth of Guston’s work. Among 20th-century artists, Guston is especially relevant to a younger generation. Philip Guston Now shows his willingness to engage with social injustice and to excavate the anxieties of personal conviction from his earliest works in the 1930s through to his last in the 1970s.
