An Interview with the Artist:

Wednesday, June 3rd from 6pm to 8pm

Babcock Galleries -- Renowned art critic Irving Sandler will interview artist Marylyn Dintenfass about her current exhibition, Good & Plenty Juicy, June 3rd at Babcock Galleries from 6pm to 8pm. The invited audience will have the opportunity to hear Dintenfass discuss the "dual connotations of the enticing and the forbidden" in her work before the backdrop of the vibrant and richly textured paintings themselves. A brief Q&A and reception will follow.

Documentary film maker, Julia Mintz, whose works include Nanking, Billy Strayhorn: Lush Life, and The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo, will be present to record the conversation. The film and transcript will be available afterwards at www.babcockgalleries.com and www.artnet.com.

Irving Sandler has been a profound and prescient chronicler of the New York art world for decades. He has worked as an independent curator, a professor at NYU and SUNY-Purchase, and a writer for publications such as ARTnews, The New York Post, and Art International. As a critic, his continued emphasis on conversation with artists has earned him a deep and sustained understanding of contemporary American art.

Dintenfass is an internationally recognized artist whose work is represented in numerous major public collections in Denmark, Israel, Italy, Japan as well as many important American private, corporate and public collections including: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Lilly Wei calls Dintenfass s work a "bracing example of an experimental painting for the present."

Good & Plenty Juicy runs through June 12, 2009. Babcock Galleries is located at 724 Fifth Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets. Hours are Monday Friday from 10am-5pm and Saturday by appointment.
