Press Release

Opening June 20, 2014, 5:00-8:00pm.

In the East Wing, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents an intimate show of three works by California artist Roy De Forest. One of the foremost artists associated with the Funk movement of the 1960s, De Forest’s playful, dense works have clear resonances with contemporaneous Chicago painting and drawing. This exhibition focuses on De Forest’s brilliant works on paper from the early 1980s.
