Artistic Positions: Q+A with Luc Tuymans
On Jan. 10, "The Summer is Over," Luc Tuymans's 10th show with David Zwirner Gallery in New York, will open. The seven paintings in the exhibition, which feature imagery culled solely from the painter's personal environment, represent somewhat of a new direction in the artist's work–one where looking and self-reflection come to the fore.
A.i.A. spoke with Tuymans about the exhibition, its personal significance for the artist, and his views on the politics of privacy.
