Thomas Nozkowski, the Yale University Art Gallery’s current Happy and Bob Doran Artist in Residence, is a critically acclaimed and influential abstract painter. In 2007, Robert Storr, Dean of the Yale University School of Art, included Nozkowski’s work in the Venice Biennale. Nozkowski presently has paintings on view at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and will have a career retrospective at the Musee d’art contemporain de Montreal in 2009.  He has been called the “poet laureate of abstract painting.” Nozkowski will discuss his work and reflect on his recent projects engaging poetry and the book as forms of art.

The Yale Univeristy Art Gallery is located at 1111 Chapel Street in New Haven.
