With Donna De Salvo, Jim Jacobs and Ellie Meyer

Saturday, November 16th at 11:30 AM

This event is free, however advanced booking is recommended as space is limited.

Join us for a panel discussion on John Chamberlain and Donald Judd with Donna De Salvo, Jim Jacobs and Ellie Meyer at 11:30am on Saturday November 16th at 524 West 26th Street.

The conversation will explore the artists' work on the occasion of the two-person exhibition organized by Jim Jacobs and Paula Cooper Gallery. As landmark figures of postwar American art, John Chamberlain and Donald Judd were contemporaries and friends within the New York art world beginning in the 1960s. On view from November 2 through December 14, the show focuses on the artists’ parallel experimentation with material, form and color, as shaped by their artistic exchange and personal friendship.
