A Conversation with Jose Bedia Regarding his Works, his Travels and Collecting
Bonnie Clearwater, Director and Chief Curator of NSU Art Museum of Fort Lauderdale
& Jose Bedia, Artist and 2018 Visionary Award Winner
The extraordinary artistic legacy of Jose Bedia goes beyond the contributions of the Cuban and Latin American modernist vanguard, of crossing and merging movements and styles between the western and peripheral artistic experiences. This year’s ArtPalmBeach Visionary honoree will be engaging in a lecture led by Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator of the NSU Art Museum of Fort Lauderdale, that was home an exhibition of Bedia’s work earlier this year. Together, Bedia and Clearwater will trace the methods, inspirations and sentiments behind his prized works, the experiences and travels that informed them, and the state of collecting today. The lecture will take place at 2pm on January 20th.

Alex Katz: Small Paintings
Lanya Snyder, Assistant Curator, Boca Raton Museum of Art
Ms. Snyder will present a fascinating discussion and PowerPoint presentation on the current exhibition of Alex Katz’s works at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. The exhibition is comprised of works from the less explored side of the artist’s practice by featuring Katz’s small paintings alongside his iconic large and distinct canvases. The small works present an alternative perspective to the artist’s larger and more familiar works and reveal a side to his process that is highly gestural and instinctive. “Alex Katz: Small Paintings” exhibition is on view through April 8, 2018, at the museum.
