Artists Joseph Burwell and Reuben Lorch-Miller join Lynn Gumpert, director of NYU’s Grey Art Gallery, for a wide-ranging conversation focusing on their multimedia works—which range from painting, sculpture, and printmaking to installation. Both Burwell and Lorch-Miller also work as freelance art preparators installing exhibitions at the Grey and other museums citywide. As part of our new series Behind the Scenes at the Grey, they will discuss their approaches to artmaking. Q&A to follow.
