Alum Don Kimes Interviewed by Art Historian Barbara Rose

Don Kimes’s Studio, 2020

“I went to five different schools, but as I’ve said, the place that had the greatest impact was the Studio School of the 1970s. There I met dozens of artists, but the ones who had the greatest impact were the ones who had a strong conviction that art was the most important thing in the world, that the location of a mark on a piece of paper was a life and death struggle. They weren’t teaching me how to do what they did. Yes, they spoke a lot about form, space, pressure, structure – all modernist ideas, but they weren’t thinking of these things as art. They were each giving me a language. ” – Don Kimes
