Recurring Event Last Look with Lucia Hierro and Jessica Beck: Marisol and Warhol Take New York
To celebrate the closing of the exhibition Marisol and Warhol Take New York, Jessica Beck, Milton Fine curator of art, joins conceptual artist Lucia Hierro for a conversation in the galleries to discuss Marisol’s life, work, and legacy. Exploring the exhibition together, Beck and Hierro bring contemporary perspectives to Marisol’s practice and unpack her influence on the 1960’s New York art world in addition to her continued relevance today.
Lucia Hierro has worked with the Pop aesthetic since her early years at art school and infuses personal narrative and cultural identity into the Pop tradition. Her work is a reminder that Pop is a contemporary genre that continues to engage new artists and address issues of contemporary life.
Visitors can convene in The Warhol entrance space at 2 p.m. where they will be ushered to the entrance of the exhibition on the fourth floor.
