Center Space Project presents “A Conversation on Abstraction,” a discussion session with Nick Griffin, Philip Harrell, and Anne Riley, the artists in the exhibition Now What It Never Was. Amidst the works of the show, the artists will discuss the exhibition in relation to the Hammer Museum's 2008 exhibition Oranges and Sardines, a major influence on them and the inspiration for their current show.
