Join the MFA for a conversation with Steve Martin, Eric Fischl, Adam Gopnik, and Matthew Teitelbaum about about Lawren Harris, pioneering modernist, on Saturday, March 12. The event takes place as an exhibition of approximately 30 iconic works, “The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris,” opens at the MFA. The artist’s visionary paintings of the northern Canadian landscape have become icons of 20th-century Canadian art, and his work exists in dialogue with American modern artists.
