Show Notes

This episode, host Lindsay Preston Zappas is joined by painter Lari Pittman that was recorded just days before Pittman's retrospective opened at the Hammer Museum in LA. They discuss personal experiences that have deeply influenced his work, and talk about what it was like to delve into painting and decoration in the '70s—a time when painting was as Pittman says, “dilapidated.” Pittman now teaches painting at UCLA, and in this conversation, he talks about the impact that working with younger artists has had on him. He also delves into his early experiences growing up in Colombia, the impact that his identity has had on his work and the way in which his work has found a dialogue with a new generation of contemporary painters.
