Intersections Presents Thomas Lawson

November 6, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Art Auditorium

Thomas Lawson is an artist and writer. Currently Dean of the School of Art at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), he was part of the 1980s Pictures generation in New York. His essay, Last Exit: Painting, published in Artforum in 1981, ushered in a renewed approach to painting in the media age. He has since been an influential champion of the continued importance of painting as a “deconstructive tool designed to undermine the certainty of appearances.” His recent paintings use the figure in allegorical meditations on the contemporary experience of presence.

He has exhibited at Metro Pictures in New York, Anthony Reynolds in London, and LAXART in Los Angeles. He recently participated in UCLA Hammer Museum’s Made in LA, and surveys of his work have been organized by the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art at La Jolla, the CCA in Glasgow and the Battersea Arts Centre in London.
