FRED EVERSLEY, 50 YEARS AN ARTIST: LIGHT & SPACE & ENERGY
at MUSCARELLE MUSEUM OF ART

Fred Eversley, 50 Years an Artist: Light & Space & Energy features a survey of the artist’s work representing an extraordinary fifty-year career.  Eversley, trained as an engineer, began making his polyester resin sculptures with an aim to “create kinetic art without using kinetic elements such as mechanical movement or artificial light changes.”  Eversley’s strong interest in energy  has led to further creations that utilize wind current to create dynamic acrylic cast forms.  This retrospective exhibition featuring the works of Fred Eversley, an important African American sculptor and innovator, will coincide with the College’s fiftieth anniversary of the first residential African American students.  Interestingly, as the artist has pointed out to us, the dates of desegregation at the College of William & Mary in September 1967 is the exact month and year that he embarked on his exceptional career as an artist.

In this lecture, Darby English, Starr Director of Research and Academic Program at the Clark Art Institute, considers the intense traffic in ideas about art and culture that animated New York’s art world around 1971. In that year—just as newer forms of radical art practice such as Conceptualism and Earth art were gaining ground—late modernist painting and sculpture exhibited unexpected new capacities, and briefly restored abstraction’s historical alliance with urgent, and otherwise inexpressible, social and political quandaries. Formalism as activism? Let’s see.
The Hilla Rebay Lecture brings distinguished scholars to the Guggenheim Museum to examine significant issues in the theory, criticism, and history of art. This annual program is made possible through the generosity of The Hilla von Rebay Foundation.
