We covered much ground in both the AM and PM Talks. Bouncing our ideas on grit and resiliency off of outstanding art of Lee Krasner, On Kawara, Paul Thek, Eva Hesse, Teresa Burga, Jasper Johns and Jeanne Claude and Christo …
It is pure delight to have such enthusiastic 😄and participative ArtTalkers!
Below please find links and references that we spoke about:
Angela Duckworth’s book on “Grit” is an excellent source.
As is the fundamental work on mindsets by Prof. Carol Dweck the Stanford researcher who coined “growth mindset.” Check out her Ted Talks too.
A wonderful documentary about the life and work of Eva Hesse
Ulrike contributed an article on Henri Matisse who taught himself a new way of making art with 💚colorful cut-outs after he could no longer hold a paint brush!
