July 13 – September 23, 2007
This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Dinkin exhibit.
The works on view range in date from 1936 to contemporary works created in the last five years. All relate to, or are derived from, the abstraction of the 1950’s. The earliest work in the show predates Abstract Expressionism by decades, other works represent the wide variety of responses to Abstract Expressionism by mid-century artists, while another group of works date from the 1960’s and 1970’s and respond to the society and culture surrounding the events of those decades—feminism, civil rights, foreign war movements. Including works by Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell and Hans Hoffman, among others.
