Unorthodox artists Austė, Brian Belott, Meriem Bennani, Brian DeGraw, Tommy Hartung, Nick Payne, Jeni Spota, Jamian Juliano Villani, and others discuss their unorthodox artistic practices with co-curators Kelly Taxter and Daniel S. Palmer.
The talk is presented in the context of Unorthodox, a large-scale group exhibition featuring over 50 contemporary artists from around the world whose practices mix forms and genres without concern for artistic conventions. Though the artists in Unorthodox come from a wide variety of backgrounds and generations, they are united in their spirit of independence and individuality. Through over 200 works, the exhibition will highlight the importance of iconoclasm and art’s key role in breaking rules and traditions. Numerous works that examine social and political values, religion and humanism, trauma, and identity explore the relationship between the human figure and the modern creative process.
Unorthodox is organized by Jens Hoffmann, Deputy Director, Exhibitions and Public Programs, Daniel S. Palmer, Leon Levy Assistant Curator, and Kelly Taxter, Assistant Curator, of The Jewish Museum.
