HARMONY KORINE: SHADOWS AND LOOPS
Frist Art Museum / 919 Broadway November 4, 2016 - January 16, 2017
In the Frist Center’s exhibition of paintings by noted artist and filmmaker Harmony Korine, the spontaneity of outsider art is given a psychedelic twist. Through his use of raw and distressed surfaces, unpredictable layering, and checkerboard and concentric patterning, Korine disrupts perceptions of topography and space. In his hour-long discussion at the reception, Korine will share his sources of inspiration and artistic process with chief curator Mark Scala.
