On November 1, Walton Ford sat down with legendary art dealer Irving Blum at Gagosian Beverly Hills to discuss his newest exhibition, Calafia. Moderated by Gagosian's Rani Singh, the discussion launches into detailed accounts of Walton's beginnings, the centrality of literature and natural history research in his process, and guides the viewer through the large-scale watercolors on display with a particular eye to the histories and myths of California.
