Richard Phillips to Speak at AFA ArtTalks

Wednesday, March 9, 6:30 p.m., at Christie's

"Ironic, critical and conflicting, Richard Phillips lulls us into a false sense of security, before pouncing with some rather challenging subjects." —Wallpaper (2009)

The American Federation of Arts (AFA) is pleased to announce that artist Richard Phillips is the next speaker in the AFA's 2010/11 ArtTalks, a lecture series featuring notable figures in the art world. Following the lecture, audience members are invited to participate in a question-and-answer session and a wine reception.

Richard Phillips has a striking signature style that derives from his distinctive use of popular images—often from advertising, fashion spreads, and erotic media—that he translates into drawings and then luscious, oversized realist paintings executed through a traditional process. With fashion, media, and film collaborations, Phillips's imagery has achieved a level of pop recognition outside of the art world.

Phillips has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe,
with solo shows at Gagosian Gallery, New York; White Cube, London; Max Hetzler in Berlin; Kunsthalle Zürich; Le Consortium in Dijon; and Kunstverein Hamburg. Adolf Dietrich, Richard Phillips / Painting and Misappropriation will be at the Kunstmuseum des Kantons Thurgau in Ittingen, Switzerland, in May 2011; and Most Wanted, a solo show featuring paintings of celebrities over luxury-label backdrops, opened January 27 at White Cube Gallery in London. Phillips lives and works in New York.

The ArtTalk will be held on Wednesday, March 9, 6:30 p.m., at Christie's, located at 20 Rockefeller Plaza, which is on 49th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues.

In-kind support for ArtTalks is provided by Christie's.

Admission is $15; $10 for AFA members and students with valid identification. Seating is limited and reservations are required.
To purchase tickets online, click here, or please call
 212.988.7700 ext. 210.

The AFA is a nonprofit institution that organizes art exhibitions for presentation in museums around the world, publishes exhibition catalogues, and develops educational materials and programs.
