Jordan D. Schnitzer & THe Visiting Artist LECTURE Series: Bruce Nauman

Jordan D. Schnitzer & THe Visiting Artist LECTURE Series: Bruce Nauman

Bruce Nauman: Language Body mines the collection of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and presents fifteen works that showcases two elemental components found in the oeuvre of Bruce Nauman, anatomy and text. Beginning in the late 1960’s Nauman has forged a sensibility in his work where he puns upon the unstable nature of language and flesh, colliding these materials into a swirl of humor and insight.

This event is co-presented by Converge 45 and the Jordan D. Schnitzer Exhibition and Visiting Artist Series.

IN LIVING COLOR: ANDY WARHOL AND CONTEMPORARY PRINTMAKING

IN LIVING COLOR: ANDY WARHOL AND CONTEMPORARY PRINTMAKING

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) depicted the world with the volume turned up. Employing a seemingly endless palette, his work has challenged our perceptions of popular culture, politics, and consumerism for more than fifty years. Warhol was the central figure of American Pop Art, a genre that emerged in the late 1950s in reaction to the heroism of Abstract Expressionism

Spanning three decades of Warhol's career, In Living Color: Andy Warhol and Contemporary Printmaking features some of the artist's most iconic screen prints, including his portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Mao Zedong, the splashy camouflage series, and the controversial Electric Chair portfolio. Drawn exclusively from the rich collections of Jordan Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, In Living Color is divided into five sections-experimentation, emotion, experience, subversion, and attitude. In each, Warhol's work is placed in conversation with other artists of the postwar era who use color as a tool to shape how we interpret and respond to images.

FRANK STELLA PRINTS: A RETROSPECTIVE

FRANK STELLA PRINTS: A RETROSPECTIVE

For over fifty years, Frank Stella has created a significant body of abstract art comprised of paintings, reliefs, sculptures, drawings, and prints. Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective details the artist’s remarkable career as a printmaker. It presents, as evidence, over 100 prints that make apparent how his highly experimental endeavors have redefined the traditional print. The exhibition also offers a clear view of Stella’s stylistic evolution—a series of reinventions from the minimalist geometric abstraction of the early years to the baroque exuberance of the later gestural work.Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective is the artist’s first major print retrospective since 1982. The exhibition is also the occasion for the publication of a revised and expanded second edition of The Prints of Frank Stella: A Catalogue Raisonné, 1967─1982 (New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1983).
