Talks

On Matthew Wong: Soumya Netrabile & Peter Shear

Tuesday, October 5, 7 pm
Zoom

Join artists Soumya Netrabile and Peter Shear for a conversation about the painting of Toronto-born Chinese-Canadian artist Matthew Wong (1984-2019), moderated by the AGO’s Julian Cox. 

This program is held in association with Matthew Wong: Blue View,  the first museum exhibition dedicated to the brilliant but short-lived career of Matthew Wong. Curated by Julian Cox, AGO’s Deputy Director and Chief Curator, the exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue, co-published by the AGO and DelMonico Books/D.A.P.

Soumya Netrabile (American, born 1966 in Bangalore, India) lives and works in Chicago. Netrabile received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BSEE in engineering from Rutgers University. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Pt.2 Gallery (Oakland, CA) and Terra Incognito (Oak Park, IL). Recent group exhibitions include Anat Ebgi, Los Angeles, CA; Trinta Gallery (Santiago de Compostela, Spain); PRACTISE (Oak Park, IL); and KARMA, New York, NY. Her work is included in both public and private collections. She is currently having a solo exhibition at Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago.

Peter Shear (American, born 1980 in Beverly Farms, Massachusetts) lives and works in Bloomington, Indiana. While unified in simplicity of delivery, Peter Shear's paintings range widely across imagery and manner of execution. The result is a body of work which Shear, borrowing from the languages of abstraction, has evolved into a shorthand vocabulary at once personal and familiar, slangy and poetic.
