This fall, the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR) will exhibit paintings by Guggenheim Fellow, PRATT professor and Visual AIDS Artist Member Patrick Webb, in a show entitled “What Makes the Engine Go?” The exhibition will include work from the last 21 years, with a focus on desire in multiple queer manifestations. Webb’s Punchinello is the protagonist in his narrative paintings, who gets drawn into the heated worlds of nightime bacchanals as well as gym showers. This exhibition is being held in conjunction with a daylong workshop at IPTAR entitled “Queer Theory and Psychoanalysis: Intersections and Controversies,” which takes place on September 29th.
Reception: Saturday, October 6, 2018, 4-7 PM
Viewing Monday through Friday 10-4, only by appointment
