Artist Lecture - Jose Manuel Ballester

Join us for this special lecture by an artist represented in the installation Spanish Muse: A Contemporary Response (September 12–December 12, 2010). Madrid native José Manuel Ballester works in a variety of media, but he is best known for his photographs of deserted architectural spaces such as Times Square or the subway system in Madrid. In 2008, he turned his attention to Old Master paintings, moving what was the background to the foreground by digitally removing the human presence. His representative work El Jardín deshabitado (The Garden uninhabited), based on Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, will be featured at the Meadows Museum. Bob Smith Auditorium. Free; no reservations required. Seating is on a first-come, first served basis; priority seating for Meadows Museum members until 5:40 p.m. For more information, call 214.768.4677.
