      Featuring artists Judith Bernstein and Kim Jones, this conversation—moderated by Kraus Family Curator Gary Carrion-Murayari— will build from Peter Saul’s use of shock and irreverence to consider how artists address politics and current events. Identifying parallels and divergences between art in the 1960s-1970s and now, this conversation will consider the limits and possibilities humor can afford political art.

      For over fifty years, Judith Bernstein (b. 1942, Newark, New Jersey) has developed a reputation as one of her generation’s most seminal and provocative artists, connecting the political and sexual. This fall, Bernstein will present an anti-Trump exhibition at The Box, Los Angeles, and a retrospective at the Hall Art Foundation Schloss Derneburg Museum in 2021.
