Artist Talk: James Siena
March 30 · 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Join renowned artist James Siena in conversation with BMA Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings & Photographs Ann Shafer. Siena (American, b. 1957) is a New York-based artist whose vibrantly colored concentrations of freehand geometric patterns are driven by self-imposed, predetermined sets of rules, or “visual algorithms.”
Siena works across a diverse range of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, and printmaking. His work is held in numerous prestigious public and private collections across the U.S., including the BMA; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
