Event Description:

Red Grooms, Artist
Public Talk
Wednesday, March 13 at 5 p.m.
Lehman Art Gallery, Fine Arts Gallery

Grooms was born in Nashville in 1937 and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the New School, New York. Grooms played a crucial role in late 1950s downtown Manhattan, developing what became known as "Happenings" and co-founding two loft galleries, where he exhibited friends and peers. Though best known for his immersive installations, Grooms has also created a more intimate, though equally wide-ranging body of work in drawing, painting, and sculpture that reveals him to be a one-man movement whose vision of art and culture is broad, dem­ocratic, and joyous. Grooms' work is included in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Mu­seum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Carnegie Museum of Art. In 2018, Dan Nadel curated a solo exhibition titled "Red Grooms: Handiwork, 1955-2018" at Marlborough Contemporary.
