Chuck Close Is Speaking At Parsons

chuck_close.jpg paul-goldberger-web.jpg

We went to the inaugural “At the Parsons Table” talk last year, in which Frank Gehry made self-deprecating comments about his inability to use a computer and Paul Goldberger laughed. This year, the series kicks off its second round (does a second iteration a second round make?) with Dean Paul again hosting, this time Chuck Close, who we all remember from his fine letter in support of Two Columbus Circle. Parsons says:

Dean Goldberger will discuss with Close the balance between abstraction and realism as embodied in his work; his thoughts on the future of the field of painting, on the role of the artist as citizen-activist, the future of arts education, and his thoughts on the field of architecture (an interest if not a vocation of Close’s).

We’ll be there — and although we can’t yet commit to the pirate shirt, we’re easy to spot. Say hi. We get lonely at these things.
