Artist Talk: Jonathan VanDyke

Friday, June 3, 2011 ● 7 pm

Lower West Gallery

How long do most people stop to look at a work of art—five minutes, 30 seconds? The artist Jonathan VanDyke will stand and contemplate Jackson Pollock’s Convergence, 1952, for forty hours over five days for a performance work called The Long Glance. In this talk, VanDyke will share discoveries from his performance and discuss connections to his other work. He will also give a short reprise performance earlier on June 3, from 1:30 to 5 pm.

VanDyke's original performance of The Long Glance will take place at the Gallery from Saturday, May 28, through Thursday, June 2, 2011.


On the First Friday of every month—from 10 am to 10 pm—admission to the Gallery's Collection, and to most events and performances, is free for everyone. Learn more
