artists & participants
This group exhibition brings together more than twenty New York-based artists whose works engage diverging conceptual approaches to abstract painting and question the fundamental roots of the medium’s modernist legacies. Renegotiating histories of painting with a mixture of both irony and sincerity, these artists appropriate aspects of non-narrative abstraction as “ready-made” vocabularies to be reinvented. Whether resulting from detached and mechanized modes of production or more direct, hand-rendered means, the works’ formal gestural qualities are offered up in relation to conceptual, minimalist, process, and pop art traditions.
