Event: Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 6PM
The Station Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to present an evening of conversation with Irvin Tepper on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 6pm. This event is in conjunction with Tepper’s solo exhibition, Evidence of Phantoms Made Real Between Thoughts, which is on view until January 12, 2020. The event will be a conversation between Tepper and Assistant Curator, Sophie Asakura about the show and Tepper’s artistic process. It is free and open to the public.
Curated by Ann Harithas, founder and executive director of the Five Points Museum in Victoria, Texas, Evidence of Phantoms Made Real Between Thoughts features a new series of drawings, sculptures, and video by Tepper. His work revolves around the tension between being and non-being. It is a reminder to make space for mystery and wonderment. His artworks are guidelines for reading between the lines, looking past the arbitrary order we have built up around ourselves and into the spiritual beyond.
Irvin Tepper was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Working as a sculptor, draftsman, and photographer, he has had more than 20 solo exhibitions in museums and galleries across the United States. His work is represented in numerous permanent collections such as the Kunstmuseum Bern, Switzerland; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England; The Smithsonian Institute, Washington, DC; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; among others. He currently lives in New York.
