This popular series of lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics is free and open to the public each Tuesday from September 12 through November 14 (no lecture October 31).
Artist Robyn O’Neil will speak on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. in conjunction with the publication of Robyn O’Neil: 20 Years of Drawings. She will also offer a book signing at 6 p.m.
O’Neil, a Los Angeles–based artist, is known for thoughtful and facile depictions of her dystopian subjects in ambitious drawings that range from intimate to monumental in scale, according to the Modern’s website.
“For Tuesday Evenings, O’Neil shares her images, thoughts, and processes in drawing as found in the recently published book Robyn O’Neil: 20 Years of Drawings, available in the Modern Shop,” the website reads.
