Biennial Artists Present Their “Art Crushes” at CMCA

Tad Beck “Bicycle Crash 10”

 

Back by popular demand, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) is offering its lively and thought-provoking lecture series, Who Do You Love? in conjunction with this year’s Biennial Exhibition.

The third iteration of the series takes place on Sunday, January 6, at 3pm, and features Biennial artists Tad Beck (Vinalhaven, ME), Seth Koen (South Bristol, ME + Easthampton, MA), and Gina Siepel (Portland, ME + Greenfield, MA)

The Who Do You Love? format asks each artist to share their most important “art crushes” with the audience. Each artist presents three works of art by other artists that they love, and tells why. In this way, the audience is introduced to a wide range of art and gains insight into how artists take inspiration from the work of other artists, and how deep looking informs their own work. A question and answer period will follow the presentations. The “Who Do You Love?” lecture series is free with admission. Video recordings of the series are available on Vimeo and the CMCA website.

The CMCA Biennial is on view through March 3, 2019. Support for the Biennial is provided by First National Bank. For more information, visit cmcanow.org.
