The Rose Art Museum Announces Jennie C. Jones as Recipient of 2017 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence AwardThe Rose Art Museum Announces Jennie C. Jones as Recipient of 2017 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award
by BWW News Desk - Mar 16, 2017

The Rose Art Museum is pleased to name Jennie C. Jones as the recipient of the 2017 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award. Drawing connections between art and music, the Brooklyn-based artist creates visual and sound abstractions that explore intersections between cultural and social histories. Through her work, Jones highlights the complex and often parallel legacies of the mid-twentieth century—from abstraction, Minimalism, and avant-garde jazz to the era's seminal political and social shifts—revealing the unlikely alliances that emerge between the visual arts and music of the 1950s and '60s. Jones describes her approach as “listening as a conceptual practice.” (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2017

Director/Designer Carlos Soto presents Everything Alright as part of New York Live Arts' residency program, Live Feed in Progress. Soto's new work is a musical theater work that follows a group of people faced with the intrusion of a visitor.  The piece revolves around infinite variations of views and values centered on a traumatic event. In the formlessness of the ensemble, characters rotate and no single person plays one role throughout, blurring chronology and place. (more...)

Zimmerli Art Museum Examines American Art Circa 1966Zimmerli Art Museum Examines American Art Circa 1966
by BWW News Desk - Oct 6, 2016

When the Zimmerli's curators first devised two complementary exhibitions of American art titled Circa 1966 - one focusing on prints, the other on paintings and sculpture - the intention was to commemorate the museum's golden anniversary by spotlighting key works created around the time of its founding. But in addition to spotlighting revolutionary movements that now have an established presence in art history, the subjects of many of the works focus on social and political discussions from the era that have prominently re-emerged across the United States.

Hauser & Wirth to Display New Philip Guston Exhibit, TodayHauser & Wirth to Display New Philip Guston Exhibit, Today
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

New York... Beginning 26 April 2016, Hauser & Wirth will present 'Philip Guston: Painter, 1957 – 1967', exploring a pivotal decade in the career of the preeminent 20th century American artist. Featuring 36 paintings and 53 drawings, many on loan from major museums and private collections, the exhibition draws together a compelling body of work that reveals the artist grappling to reconcile gestural and field painting, figuration and abstraction. Calling attention to a series of works that have not yet been fully appreciated for their true significance in the artist's development, 'Philip Guston: Painter, 1957 – 1967' explores a decade in which Guston confronted aesthetic concerns of the New York School, questioning modes of image making and what it means to paint abstractly. In the number and quality of paintings on view from this period, the show parallels Guston's important 1966 survey at the Jewish Museum in New York, a half century ago. As its title suggests, the exhibition offers an intimate look at Guston's unique relationship to painting and the process by which his work evolved.  (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2016

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to announce worldwide representation of Jack Whitten, the American abstractionist celebrated for his innovative processes of applying and transfiguring paint in works equally alert to materiality, politics, and metaphysics. Whitten holds a unique place in the narrative of postwar American art: over the course of a five-decade career, he has constructed a bridge between gestural abstraction and process art, experimenting ceaselessly to arrive at a nuanced language of painting that hovers between mechanical automation and deeply personal expression.
