Former NBA Commissioner David Stern Shares Career Experiences with YU Students
Yeshiva University Museum is pleased to announce a panel discussion “Figuration, Abstraction and the Spiritual” featuring the exhibition “David Stern: The American Years 1995-2008” on November 13, 2008 at 6:30 pm. The curator of the traveling exhibition, Karen Wilkin, will introduce and moderate a panel including the artist, David Stern, and the art critic Lance Esplund, as well as noted New York artists Archie Rand and Jill Nathanson. The panel will discuss the visual languages inventive present day artists employ to embody spiritual content in wholly contemporary terms.
The Yeshiva University Museum is the first venue of a national traveling exhibition of paintings by David Stern, a German native who immigrated to New York City in 1995. The 57 paintings and drawings in “Abstraction, Figuration, and the Spiritual David Stern: The American Years (1995-2008)” demonstrate shifts in form and content in Stern’s work since the artist arrived in New York.
