Join us for a discussion with LA-based artist Dan Levenson. His work addresses issues of subjectivity, education, creativity and freedom.

Art Talk Tuesdays is a new initiative of Brand Library & Art Center in which we invite contemporary artists to discuss their work and the issues that surround it, followed by a moderated discussion with Los Angeles artist and writer Jennifer Remenchik.  This program is free and open to the public.

Dan Levenson is a Los Angeles-based visual artist working in installation, performance, video, painting, and sculpture. His work addresses issues of subjectivity, education, creativity and freedom and takes the form of artifacts rescued from the ruins of an imaginary art school: the State Art Academy, Zürich (its initials in Swiss-German are SKZ). As a painter, he follows the strict formalist pedagogy of his imaginary school: geometrically dividing metrically sized canvases to create abstract compositions. He expands on the story through performance, installation and video. Levenson has taught performative drawing lessons taken from the school’s curriculum at the Hammer Museum, American Jewish University, USC’s Roski School of Art, Mast on Fig, and the Saas-Fee Summer Institute in Berlin, Germany. 

Dan Levenson has exhibited at James Fuentes Online; Vielmetter Los Angeles; Honor Fraser; Praz-Delavallade, Paris and Los Angeles; de boer Gallery; PARTICIPANT INC; LAXART; White Columns; and Vox Populi. He is the recipient of a Pollock/Krasner grant and Yaddo and MacDowell Fellowships, among other awards.
