“The show is over.” Or is it? This exhibition is about abstraction and the end of painting, often proposed but never concluded. Christopher Wool’s statement in paintings, drawings and billboards, taken from Vasily Rozanov’s nineteenth century definition of nihilism, contains sufficient irony to suggest that painting itself, the spectacle that surrounds it, and the ultimate questions it poses about life and death, are never quite over.
The exhibition boasts an impressive 35 major modern artists, and one particular controversy that caught our attention is that only one of these artists is a woman! Join us on this survey of abstract painting to discuss its merits and limitations and see what women artists we would have included in the show.
