Gallery Talk: En Gaard

Part of Frank Gaard: Poison & Candy

Experience the exhibition from the artist’s point of view. An astute critic of art, politics, music, and literature as well as an avid proponent of artistic libertarianism, Frank Gaard has observed in his must-read blog that “art is liberty in the flesh, painting is a weapon.” In this discussion, Gaard covers a range of topics, including the role of sex, religion, and color in his work; his early years as a professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and publisher of Artpolice; and the importance of Marcel Duchamp to his painting practice.
