CALL/VoCA Talk: Gwen Fabricant

It’s called Gravity and Grace. I was reading a little bit of Simone Weil’s book that has that title. She says that attention is the most pure form of generosity—to pay attention. What I really hope for in having anyone look at my work is to pay a lot of attention, very slowly.”

In this interview, New York-based painter Gwen Fabricant, interviewed by conservator Jennifer Hickey on September 14, 2017, reflects on her CALL experience, and offers insight into her process of finding, seeing, and recording reality in her paintings, collages, assemblages, and scanned imagery.

This event was one of a series hosted in partnership with VoCA to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work.
