On the occasion of the exhibition Mary Corse: A Survey in Light, the Whitney Museum of American Art will bring together artists, curators, and scholars to discuss Mary Corse’s work and her innovative engagements with the medium of painting. Topics to be considered include: materials and luminosity, contingency and vision, and new perspectives on artistic practices of the 1960s and 70s.
