Landmarks of 20th Century American Art
November 8, 2018 – January 5, 2019

New York, NY – Forum Gallery (est. 1961) will present the exhibition, Landmarks of 20th Century American Art from November 8, 2018 to January 5, 2019. The exhibition will present thirty singularly important works of art dating from 1917 to 1991 and can be described as a journey through the history of Forum Gallery as well as the history of American art of the 20th Century.

Each work in the show represents a point of departure for the Artist and for American art. An early, still life painting by Willem de Kooning created between 1928 and 1929 is shown alongside an influential abstraction by Arshile Gorky from the same years. Each of these is a precursor of works, and whole movements, to come. Elie Nadelman’s Two Circus Women, a seminal life-size plaster sculpture from the same time, is now a well-known image, as it served as the model for the monumental, marble sculpture in the promenade of the David H. Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center. Major still life paintings by Preston Dickinson and Marsden Hartley from the 1920s are these Artists’ uniqueimpressions of their subjects, while a rare, abstract painting by Man Ray is more an expression of the act of painting itself.

The striking and elegant 1935 terra cotta and silver sculpture, Leaning Figure, by Alexander Archipenko will be shown with a Mother and Child oil on canvas by Arshile Gorky from 1937. The 1940’s yield an iconic Barn Abstraction painting by Charles Sheeler, a rare, major oil painting, Sea and Boat Fantasy, by John Marin and a startlingly original, pivotal oil by the African-American master, Norman Lewis. These works, taken together, exemplify dramatic changes in American art during this time. The 1950’s and 1960’s were turbulent times in American art; although non-objective art is not shown here, as it would require an entire exhibition of its own, the exhibition will show important social realist examples by Philip Evergood and Raphael Soyer; a mystical and mysterious portrait of his muse by the iconoclast, John Graham; an abstracted portrait of critic, Harold Rosenberg, by Elaine de Kooning; an elegant wood-and-found-object sculpture by Louise Nevelson and important paintings by Gregory Gillespie and George Tooker. 


Completing this look at a century of American art is a “story quilt” by the percipient and courageous Faith Ringgold, an Artist known for paintings characterized by an outspoken activism that is as relevant and necessary today as it ever was. 

The exhibition, Landmarks of 20th Century American Art, is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with complete documentation and a scholarly text for each work on exhibit.

OPENING TONIGHT

Maurizio Anzeri, Galliano, 2018  /  Patsy Krebs, Untitled 2-18, 2018
Maurizio Anzeri
In-Equilibrio

Vintage photographs of circus performers are brought to joyous life in Maurizio Anzeri's first large-scale exhibition at Haines Gallery. Anzeri combines his signature hand embroidery with materials such as strips of brass and steel, colored paper, and gaffer tape, to create circus scenes that are as whimsical as they are enigmatic, filled with uncanny figures and mysterious emanations. Debuting alongside these images will be his first video work, also entitled In-Equilibrio, which animates his surreal portraiture and landscapes.  Press Release


Patsy Krebs
Aletheia: reveal/conceal

Norther California painter Patsy Krebs continues to mine the optical and affective possibilities of reductive painting. With an elegantly refined formal vocabulary and restrained palette, she creates ethereal paintings that explore our perceptions of light, color, and space. The term "aletheia" in Ancient Greek philosophy suggests both an active revealing and its opposite, concealment, pointing towards an essential quality of Krebs' practice: one that rewards careful viewing, as complex forms and meaning are revealed over time.  Press Release
