East Building Auditorium
linn meyers, artist and cofounder, STABLE, in conversation with Jonathan Frederick Walz, director of curatorial affairs and curator of American art, Columbus Museum
Artist linn meyers creates works that reveal the expansive potential of drawing. In monumental installations drawn straight onto the wall and smaller works of ink on panel or Mylar, meyers uses simple designs and delicate handling of materials to make rhythm visible in drawings of astonishing detail. That meyers works alone—even on the 400-foot long our view from here, made in 2017 at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden—means these drawings also materialize her extensive labor, recording not only meyers’s skill but also her endurance. With fellow Washington, DC-based artists Tim Doud and Caitlin Teal Price, meyers is a cofounder of STABLE, a local studio complex that provides visual artists with an active, affordable workspace to pursue their profession. On December 9, 2018, meyers and Jonathan Frederick Walz, director of curatorial affairs and curator of American art at the Columbus Museum, discuss the artist’s practice and institutional collaborations to celebrate the publication of her monograph, linn meyers: Works 2004–2018.
A book signing of linn meyers: Works 2004–2018 follows.
