Conversation with the Directors: All the Possibilities: Reflections on a Painting by Vernon Pratt – VIRTUAL

Wednesday, December 16, 2020
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Free for Museum Members; registration required

All the Possibilities… Reflections on a Painting by Vernon Pratt is a documentary meditation on North Carolina modernist artist Pratt’s over 1,400-square-feet systematic abstraction painting ALL THE POSSIBILITIES OF FILLING IN SIXTEENTHS (65,536), which was completed in 1982 but only recently exhibited for the first time. All the Possibilities… gives viewers a unique experience of Pratt’s mesmerizing and massive artwork from the level of the smallest square to the painting as a whole. With a percussive score inspired by the painting’s mathematical formulas, All the Possibilities… immerses viewers in Pratt’s world of mathematically based abstraction, a symphony in black and white.

Join us for a fascinating conversation with Marsha Gordon and Louis Cherry, co-directors of the documentary film, and William Dodge, director of the Vernon Pratt Project. Members will enjoy a screening of the 16-minute film at the beginning of the program followed by a Q&A with Gordon, Cherry, and Dodge.
