December 13: Gino De Dominicis Tour Led By Betsey Geffen
Saturday, December 13, 2008
2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Art dealer Betsey Geffen (a.k.a. Charley Friedman) leads a tour of the Italian artist’s first major U.S. museum exhibition. In keeping with the mysterious and trickster-like spirit of Gino De Dominicis, Geffen’s tour blurs the lines between audience and participant, artist and viewer, seeing and believing.
An Italian artist who purposely shrouded himself in mystery and stood apart from popular artistic trends, Gino De Dominicis exhibited very little in North America. He worked in a variety of mediums including sculpture, painting, film, and installation. The exhibition presented at P.S.1 focuses primarily on the paintings the artist made in the 1980s and '90s, as he considered this art form the pinnacle of visual expression.
The tour will begin at 2 p.m. at the Visitor Services desk.
