Inspired by the exhibition “The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris,” opening at the MFA on March 12, join us for a unique public conversation about the artist and his legacy. Steve Martin, Eric Fischl, Adam Gopnik, and Matthew Teitelbaum will discuss Harris’s role as a pioneering modernist whose visionary paintings of the northern Canadian landscape have become icons of 20th-century Canadian art, and how his work exists in dialogue with American modern artists.
Doors will open at 6 pm.
Please Note: Tickets for Nonmembers for the event are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 6 pm on Saturday, March 12, at the Huntington Avenue Entrance. The pre-sale is for Members only.
