Artist Talk: October 11, 2 p.m. Transformer Station
Born in 1956 in New York, Julia Wachtel lives and works in Brooklyn. Active since the early 1980s, Wachtel became known for her paintings employing cartoon characters appropriated from sources as everyday and relatable as greeting cards and magazines, deliberately commenting upon our quickly evolving visual culture. Often comprised of multiple panels, her paintings also include pop stars, figures from so-called primitive cultures, and scenes from Hollywood films.
“This exhibition will survey Julia Wachtel’s career from the 1980s until now,” said Dr. Reto Thüring, associate curator of contemporary art. “It will include early paintings that juxtapose outlandish cartoon figures and politically charged imagery to her most recent works, which continue to investigate the ever-increasing pace and complexity with which images proliferate and merge."
