A Zoom discussion presented by the Pasadena Senior Center will explore new dimensions of abstract art featuring the works of seven contemporary artists.
This Cultural Thursday event with the title “Shaping Gravity: Abstract Art Beyond the Picture Plane” will feature an interactive exhibition at Forest Lawn Museum that challenges notions of what abstraction can be. The artists are all connected by their ties to Southern California and bring unique aesthetic and philosophic approaches to abstraction.
The virtual tour will be conducted by James Fishburne, director of the museum. Fishburne earned his Ph.D. in Italian Renaissance Art History in 2014 at UCLA and has taught courses at UCLA, Cal State Long Beach, Pierce College, and Valley College. He became director of the Forest Lawn Museum in 2018 and has curated several popular exhibits there. He has conducted virtual museum tours for Pasadena Senior Center audiences since 2021.
