SUSAN YORK: FOUNDATION

SUSAN YORK: FOUNDATION

The Drawing Center
Public opening Thursday, October 12, 2017
On view through October 18, 2018

For the second long-term installation presented in The Drawing Center’s Lab Corridor, Santa Fe-based artist Susan York will create a site-specific installation that references the internal structure of the museum’s 35 Wooster Street building. Using graphite as a sculptural rather than a two-dimensional medium, York will create replicas of parts of the museum’s foundation: eroded concrete piers that protrude above the museum’s ground floor. York’s long-term installation will initiate an expanded field of activity at The Drawing Center, pointing to new opportunities for exploring drawing as an interactive and socially-minded practice. Additionally, by bringing attention to The Drawing Center’s building, York’s installation will generate opportunities for discussion about the importance of museums continuing as public spaces with permanent, physical presence.

Organized by Amber Harper, Assistant Curator.

An Abstract Expressionist Master of Etching

In contrast to other Abstract Expressionists, most notably Robert Motherwell, Richard Pousette-Dart saw prints as a beginning, a surface to work on. He goes over them with acrylic, gouache, and ink.

The Democracy of Touches: A New Reading of Richard Pousette-Dart

An extensive selection of seventeen paintings by Pousette-Dart is currently displayed at Pace; a second selection, of etchings made in a single year (between 1979 – 1980), is shown for the first time at Del Deo & Barzune. (Numerous paintings at Pace have not been seen since they were originally shown at Betty Parsons Gallery.) The two exhibits also evoke the artist’s memorable fifty-year survey at the Guggenheim Museum in 2007, which compelled me to look at his entire oeuvre in a new way.

"PAUL MOGENSEN: PAINTING" REVIEWED IN THE BROOKLYN RAIL

"PAUL MOGENSEN: PAINTING" REVIEWED IN THE BROOKLYN RAIL

PAUL MOGENSEN Painting

The recent exhibition of Mogensen’s work at Del Deo & Barzune reunites paintings from the late 1960s and ’70s, along with one outlier from 2015. While at first glance the paintings appear to conform to a broadly Minimalist aesthetic, closer examination reveals a nuanced breed of modular abstraction based not on Donald Judd’s reign of seriality and symmetry, but rather on mathematical progressions and classical ratios.

SUSAN YORK: CARBON

SUSAN YORK: CARBON

Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico

January 21 – April 17, 2016

“Graphite was known as a preparatory material until the modernists of the twentieth century began presenting graphite drawings as finished works of art,” says Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Curator Carolyn Kastner. The Museum’s presentation of contemporary artists such as Susan York explores the continuity of modernist influence in the twenty-first century.
