With his upcoming retrospective exhibition at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (opening September 25, 2010), Vernon Fisher is making the proverbial rounds.
Fisher is currently in Dunn and Brown Contemporary’s (Dallas, TX) summer group show, “Floor Plan,”alongside Tara Donovan, Joseph Havel, Annette Lawrence, Amy Myers, Nic Nicosia, Matthew Sontheimer and Erick Swenson; on view through August 21. Simultaneously, Fisher is partaking in the Blanton Museum of Art‘s “Book Club,” for which he has selected four books relevant to his practice to discuss and with museum patrons. Should you be in the Austin area, and discontent with your own book club’s selections, drop by the museum to chat with Vernon about his literary influences:

August 19th, 7PM: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
September 16th, 7PM: The Elizabethan World Picture by E.M.W. Tillyard
