William Dunlap: Short Mean Fiction

May 24, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Gibbes Museum of Art


"Like tales from the Old Testament, these stories are mean, rampant with sex, violence, and death." William Dunlap's debut collection of stories, words, and pictures makes a strong case for Hypothetical Realism in his art. The artist will speak about his role to "create something out of nothing" and read excerpts from his book.

William Dunlap has distinguished himself as an artist, arts commentator, and educator, during a career that has spanned more than three decades. His paintings, sculpture, and constructions are included in prestigious collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Corcoran Gallery of Art. Six of his paintings are featuring in Out of the Wild: Animals in Contemporary Art, on view at the Gibbes Museum May 12 - September 24, 2017.

The lecture will be followed by a book signing.
