New York, NY —
The American Federation of Arts (AFA) is pleased to announce that artist Donald Sultan will be giving the first ArtTalk of 2011, to be held at Christie’s on Tuesday, January 18, at 6:30 p.m. ArtTalks, the AFA’s lecture series, features notable figures in the art world. Following Sultan’s lecture, audience members are invited to participate in a question-and-answer session and a wine reception hosted by Christie’s.

About Donald Sultan: Internationally recognized for his painting, printmaking, and sculpture, Donald Sultan is best known for his sensual, large-scale paintings and monochromatic prints that incorporate images of lemons, flowers, dominoes, and other ordinary objects. At once representational and abstract, these works are rendered through an innovative use of unlikely materials such as linoleum, tar, vinyl, spackle, and Masonite. 

Since presenting his first solo show in 1977, Sultan has had one-man exhibitions in New York, Budapest, Dusseldorf, London, Nagoya, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Zurich. (In 1992, the AFA organized a traveling exhibition of his graphic work titled Donald Sultan: A Print Retrospective.) Among the many prestigious collections in which his work can be found are those of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Tate Gallery, the Walker Art Center, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 2010, Sultan was honored with the North Carolina Award, a prestigious award given to outstanding North Carolinians. Sultan lives and works in
New York.

About the American Federation of Arts: Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the AFA is a nonprofit institution that organizes art exhibitions for presentation in museums around the world, publishes exhibition catalogues, and develops various educational programs. The AFA’s mission is to enrich the public’s experience of art and understanding of culture by organizing and traveling a diverse offering of exhibitions embracing all aspects of art history. Over the years, millions of visitors in museums around the world have viewed more than 3,000 AFA exhibitions. For more information about the AFA’s exhibitions, publications, ArtTalks, and online resources, visit
