“‘Drawing Paintings’ are something that were a reaction to the hierarchy that supposedly exists between drawing and painting. What I wanted to do was combine the two of them and make drawing and painting the same level [so] that there was no real difference.” Artist George Condo introduces his installation The Way I Think, on view through June 25, 2017.
Bettina Pousttchi stopped by earlier this month to consider works from the museum’s permanent collection to display with her own in her upcoming Intersections installation opening in June. Five of Pousttchi’s Double Monuments will be on view with a selection of the Phillips’s photographs, including the above image by Gjon Mili, Ford Car Being Driven through Deep Water at Ford Test Site, Detroit, MI (ca. 1948).
A former Phillips employee shared this sketch of Oskar Kokoschka’s Portrait of Lotte Franzos (1909) from his time at the museum during the 1960’s. Do you sketch in the galleries? We’d love to see your work!
