DAN WALSH ’78

Artist-in-Residence, 2011-12
Dan is a painter and visual artist. His work is characterized by its minimalist and abstract representations and explores the relationship between art and architectural space and the relationship between the viewer and the artwork. Many of his pieces are brightly colored acrylic on canvas paintings that are hung low to the ground and filled with imperfect geometric shapes.

Dan attended the Philadelphia College of Art (now University of the Arts) and Hunter College. He is well-respected in the NYC art community. He has had nearly 30 solo exhibitions and has shown his work at some of the most prestigious galleries and museums in the U.S. and Europe, including PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain in Geneva, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and The Royal Academy in London. Dan is represented by the Paula Cooper Gallery, the first art gallery to open in New York’s SoHo district, and Paolo Curti in Milan.
