Artist Talk: Vincent Valdez

February 10 at 2pm

The Contemporary Austin – Jones Center

The Contemporary Austin presents an artist talk featuring Vincent Valdez, a Texas-based painter and draftsman recognized for his monumental portrayals of the contemporary human figure, rendered in seductive detail. His large-scale works remark on a universal struggle within various sociopolitical arenas or eras, often with commentary on modern American life.
For this talk, Valdez will consider his art and shared interests in American race relations, politics, and culture in the context of the inaugural exhibition of The Contemporary Austin’s Suzanne Deal Booth Art Prize,¬†Against a Civic Death, by LA-based artist¬†Rodney McMillian.
