Fredi Schiff Levin Lecture: Josephine Halvorson

July 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Josephine Halvorson is an American contemporary painter, sculptor, and print maker based in Massachusetts. Born in Brewster, she studied at The Cooper Union (BFA 2003), Yale Norfolk (2002), and Columbia University (MFA 2007). She is best known for her on-site paintings, drawing from scenes of the natural world and everyday life. Her work bends material fact and immaterial illusion.
Halvorson will discuss her career as an artist, from the beginning when she took Life Drawing classes at PAAM as a teenager, all the way to 2021, when she was awarded a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship, and everything in between.

About the Fredi Schiff Levin Lectures:

In its 18th year, the Fredi Schiff Levin lecture series welcomes artists, art historians, curators, and authors to speak at PAAM, both in conjunction with exhibitions and as independent scholars. The lecture series was established in honor of artist Fredi Schiff Levin, an active member of Provincetown’s arts community from the 1960s until her passing in 2002. We extend our deepest gratitude to the Levin family, who graciously sponsors this series, and to Amy Davies and Provincetown Television for filming the series.
