Printed Matter presents 'An Excess of Quiet: A Conversation with Gabriel Ojeda-Sagué and Jarrett Earnest'
Wednesday, December 9 at 5PM EST, Printed Matter presents a conversation between Gabriel Ojeda-Sagué, co-editor of An Excess of Quiet: Selected Sketches by Gustavo Ojeda, 1979–1989, and writer, curator and critic Jarrett Earnest. The book presents a selection of over 200 never-before-seen sketches by Cuban American painter Gustavo Ojeda, best known for the lush and meditative urban nightscapes of 1980s New York City that he created prior to his death from AIDS-related complications in 1989. This event brings Earnest’s work with queer archives, most recently in his exhibition The Young and Evil, into dialogue with Ojeda-Sagué’s recuperative construction of Gustavo Ojeda’s archive, which led to the publication of the artist’s sketches in An Excess of Quiet. Ojeda-Sagué and Earnest will discuss queer archives, the subject of “private work,” horizontal approaches to art history, the reconstitution of artistic lineages and legacies and other current and related research. This event will take place on zoom. Click here to register!
