On July 6, local artist Clifford Ross, whose body of work includes painting, sculpture, photography, and stained-glass video, will be sharing the stage with architecture critic Paul Goldberger and visual artist Shirin Neshat as part of Guild Hall’s “Artist Dialogue: Clifford Ross with Paul Goldberger and Shirin Neshat.”
“There are things about Shirin’s work and about architecture that I’d like to know more about,” says Ross of the evening that is sure to be an inspiring conversation of art and architecture. “The event won’t be anything close to a lecture format. Hopefully, it will be a discussion between three people with differing perspectives and curiosity about the same subject: Why, and how, do artists break down the mediums they choose to make their art?”
Attendees will also have a chance to participate in the discussion during a Q&A that takes place following the dialogue. Says Ross, “[My hope is that] people will come away with an understanding of how artists go about their work, embracing and altering the parameters of existing media.” “Artist Dialogue: Clifford Ross with Paul Goldberger and Shirin Neshat” takes place July 6 at The John Drew Theater in the Dina Merrill Pavilion at Guild Hall, 158 Main St., East Hampton, 324-0806.
