Artist Arturo Herrera, whose work includes collage, felt wall sculptures, and wall paintings, discusses his relationship to Matisse’s legacy and the technique of the cut-out. This talk builds on Herrera’s assertion that cutting allows for active engagement with art history: “The act of cutting in order to reconfigure, to create new images, is a new, kind of mixed process, because even though I’m indebted to modernism, I need to address in which ways modernism failed and succeeded.” Herrera’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
