SkowheganTALKS, a lecture series organized by the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, features conversations between some of the most influential visual artists working today. The final talk of the second season of the series includes a conversation between artists Donald Moffett and Clifford Owens.
SkowheganTALKS features recent alumni of the residency program of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in conversation with artists who have been faculty members at Skowhegan. While the association with Skowhegan is the common factor among the artists, the conversations are not intended to focus on the artists’ respective experiences at Skowhegan, but rather to address subjects of broader interest, including the participating artists’ current and past work and the challenges and opportunities that are characteristic of working as an artist today. An especially interesting aspect of SkowheganTALKS is that the conversations are also intended explore the mentor–student relationship, a model that is becoming increasingly important for young artists in New York and worldwide.
