Join us for a presentation by artist Jacqueline Humphries, whose work Untitled (blue) (1996) is featured in the exhibition The Double: Identity and Difference in Art since 1900, which closes on October 31. Humphries will speak about her artistic practice and the theme of doubling as it has appeared throughout her career.

About The Double and Jacqueline Humphries
The Double is the first major exhibition to consider how and why modern and contemporary artists have employed doubled formats to explore perceptual, conceptual, and psychological themes. Through art, exhibition explores enduring questions of identity and difference, especially self-identity as defined by our own unconscious, by society, and by race, gender, and sexuality.

Jacqueline Humphries, born in New Orleans in 1960 and based in New York, is a painter who has reworked and revitalized the art of abstraction for the past four decades. She has adapted to—and subverted—painting’s formal and discursive conditions, often with reference to both art history and cutting-edge technological formats. Humphries’s work is included in the 59th Venice Biennale, The Milk of Dreams, curated by Cecilia Alemani, on view through November 27, 2022.

Recent solo exhibitions include Wexner Center for the Arts; Dia Art Foundation; Dan Flavin Art Institute at Dia Bridgehampton; Carnegie Museum of Art; Contemporary Art Center New Orleans; and Prospect.1, New Orleans.
