This talk is in correlation to the Marc Trujillo: American Purgatory exhibition at the Halsey Institute. Trujillo and Robert Storr will discuss themes in the exhibition. The paintings of Marc Trujillo portray quotidian scenes: fast-food restaurants, big-box store aisles, and the long terminal corridors of airports. The scenes are remarkably unremarkable. In their ubiquitous nature, the paintings present an anti-place: scenes that refer not to a specific place, but to uncannily similar tableaus that unfold every day in communities across America.
