On October 13 at 11am, join Billy Copley, Paul B. Franklin, Alison Gingeras, and moderator Nick Olney in conversation on Zoom. The panelists will discuss the formidable influence of artist, dealer, and patron, William N. Copley (1919–1996) on the occasion of Frieze Masters Viewing Room.
Kasmin's presentation, titled "Copley's Circle," brings together works by artists who were collaborators, confidants, included in exhibitions organized by Copley, collected by Copley, or championed by him through critical texts and grants. These include Richard Artschwager, Judith Bernstein, Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Leonor Fini, Richard Hamilton, Ray Johnson, Les Lalanne, Roy Lichtenstein, Man Ray, Jim Nutt, Ed Ruscha, Peter Saul, Dorothea Tanning, Andy Warhol, and H.C. Westermann.
