by BWW News Desk - May 3, 2015

May 1, 2015 (USA) - Launching for Mother's Day, the MOTHER'S RIGHT Kickstarter campaignsupports artist Michelle Hartney's conceptual installation and performance piece addressing the United States' high rates of maternal mortality, postpartum PTSD, and obstetric abuse.

The Chicago performance will happen on the grounds of Chicago's civic heart, the Richard J. Daley Center. (more...)

Andrea Rosen Gallery to Display Robert Motherwell's OPENS Series, 5/1Andrea Rosen Gallery to Display Robert Motherwell's OPENS Series, 5/1
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2015

Andrea Rosen Gallery is delighted to announce a comprehensive exhibition of Robert Motherwell's seminal Open series. The gallery has an ongoing commitment to timely presentations of historical material, in this case highlighting a point in the artist's trajectory when a confluence of institutional, intellectual, and market attention brings renewed appreciation to a significant body of work. The gallery is particularly interested in creating historical exhibitions that expand the reading and understanding of an artist's work. While Motherwell's significance may have been perceived primarily through the gestural Elegies, presenting the Opens now not only allows us to compare these masterworks against the present-day focus on abstraction, but also encourages us to reconcile the breadth of Motherwell's rigor and clarity. They are undeniably fresh, beautiful, and bold. (more...)
