Lecture & Screening
June 2, 2012, 7pm
Mark Turner, Professor of English at Kings College, London, has over recent years pursued research into the Betty Parsons Gallery, and the artists who exhibited there. This has led to a particular focus on Forrest Bess, his theories and their visibility in relation to his identity as an artist. Turner’s presentation of this research will follow a screening of Key to the Riddle, director Ari Marcopoulos and Chuck Smith's 2000 documentary on the life and work of Bess.
