In connection with his current installation at Frick Madison, artist Nicolas Party sits down for a conversation with Xavier F. Salomon, the Frick’s Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator. Party discusses the inspirations and themes that informed his mural, why he finds the ephemeral nature of his installations liberating, and his fascination with Rosalba Carriera, the “queen of pastel.”
