A conversation with Frances Archipenko Gray

Surrounded by an exceptionally rare collection of works by her late husband, Frances Archipenko Gray will give a reading from her novel My Life with Alexander Archipenko at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art on February 22 at 7:30 p.m.

Alexander Porfyrovych Arhipenko has been referred to as the “Picasso of sculpture” for his innovative use of the Cubist style in three-dimensional forms, however, the artist may be best known for introducing sculptural voids, devising “sculpto-paintings” and experimenting with materials such as clear acrylic and terracotta.

In her memoir, Gray, who was married to Archipenko from 1960 until his death in 1964, shares intimate insights into the artist’s unique philosophy and creative process.
