ART Programs: Artist Spencer Finch Discusses 'The River that Flows Both Ways' and Other Recent Works

Artist Spencer Finch will discuss his artwork on the High Line, The River That Flows Both Ways, as well as other recent works.

FREE. RSVP recommended but not required. Walk-ins will be admitted until the program is full.

The lecture will take place on the High Line in the 14th Street Passage, just South of the 14th Street stair. Elevator access is available at 16th Street.

Spencer Finch, born 1962 in New Haven Connecticut, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BA in comparative literature from Hamilton College, and a MFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design. In his installations and works on paper, Finch attempts to depict the most elusive of subjects and continually explores the nature of color, light, and memory. Often employing empirical methods to a poetic end, the works operate in the gap between the objectivity of scientific data and the subjective nature of perception.
