David Bates: The Katrina Paintings at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, May 21-August 22, 2010. Alice Thorson has written about the exhibit in the Kansas City Star. You’ll also recall that Bates was one of the artists named by Roberta Smith as under-recognized in her challenge to NY museums and curators a month or two ago in the NY Times.
Bad at Sports has posted the Painters/Painting panel discussion held at their behest last month in NYC. Participants include Tom Sanford, Kamrooz Aram, Holly Coulis, David Humphrey, Dike Blair and Deborah Kass.
