The exhibition CARMEN HERRERA: LINES OF SIGHT is on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art until January 2, 2017. To celebrate this remarkable survey of thirty years of this Cuban-born New York based artist’s work we invite you to join art historians Alejandro Anreus (William Paterson University) and Pepe Karmel (New York University) as well as the distinguished abstract painter and long-time friend of Carmen Herrera, Tony Bechara to discuss her art and larger issues related to geometric abstraction in the twentieth century and into today. Professor Edward Sullivan will moderate and discuss Herrera’s art in a Latin American context.
