Painting, "The Artist" and Albert Camus
Location: The Renaissance Society
Working with "The Artist," a short story by French Nobel Prize-winning novelist Albert Camus, Joseph Scanlan will propose several of the contemporary influences and factors that have shaped the current status of painting, as well as the paradox of our society's continued fascination with and indifference toward the creative process.
Joseph Scanlan is the Assistant Director at the Renaissance Society.
This lecture is the first in a four-part lecture series on contemporary painting in Chicago.
