Join Sean Scully, one of the leading abstract artists of our time, and Keely Orgeman, the Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Yale University Art Gallery, for a discussion addressing Scully’s artistic practice as well as the gift of his iconic painting Landline Eleuthera (2018) to the Gallery. Introduction by Stephanie Wiles, the Henry J. Heinz II Director.
Sean Scully RA (born June 30, 1945) is an Irish-born, American-based artist working as a painter, printmaker, sculptor, and photographer. His work is held in museum collections worldwide, and he has twice been named a Turner Prize nominee. Moving from London to New York in 1975, Scully helped lead the transition from Minimalism to emotional abstraction in painting, abandoning the reduced vocabulary of the former in favor of a return to metaphor and spirituality in art. Generously supported by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.
