The Un-Private Collection: Jenny Saville + Jennifer Doyle
The next program in The Un-Private Collection series presents a conversation with artist Jenny Saville and Jennifer Doyle, author and professor of English at the University of California, Riverside. The pair will discuss Saville’s work in the Broad collection and beyond: enormous canvases that focus on bodies in an unflinching manner. Likening the physicality of paint to the feeling and appearance of skin, Saville constructs sometimes horrifying images of contemporary identity. The talk will highlight the congruencies of Saville’s work and Doyle’s areas of interest, such as visual and performance studies, contemporary art history, gender studies, and critical theory.
