No Laughing Matter

Humor can be a powerful tool in the hands of both political reactionaries and progressives. The artists in this exhibition use humor subversively, as a means of undermining the dominant order or critiquing the status quo. It also offers a means of addressing social, political, and cultural issues without abandoning art for polemics or propaganda.

Through the Path of Echoes: Contemporary Art in Mexico

By constantly referring to and borrowing from aspects of a shared history and tradition, these artists present Mexican history as a force so rich and vital that it visibly shapes not only the culture, but each individual within it.

Imagenes Liricas/New Spanish Visions

After forty years of isolation, young Spanish artists are now not only part and parcel of the rich tapestry of Spain, they are also – in an atmosphere of pluralism – partakers of modes and themes that derive from British Pop Art, European expressionism, lyrical American abstraction, and broad-based conceptualism.

Contemporary Illustrated Books: Word and Image, 1976-1988

The arts of the book offer an infinite variety of delights to the eye and intellect. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see ‘great’ books, illustrated by modern masters, removed from locked museum, library, and collector’s cabinets, and presented in the expansive manner they deserve. Often lavish and iconoclastic, these volumes invite an intimacy with each artist that cannot be acquired from a unique painting, drawing, or sculpture. These books will never become merely decorative, like art objects that hang on walls. They must be experienced at close range; their substance must be studied over a period of time to be understood.

Eternal Metaphors: New Art from Italy

The differences in style and medium of each of the artists are significant but, in all the work, there exists a primary faith in the possibility of making a living connection between the specific now and the specific shared past. Rather than rummaging through the closets of art history to scavenge for relics or remnants of that past to be used as self-conscious quotation or as a bank of images, these Italian artists are at ease with their inheritance.

The Presence of Absence

All the works in The Presence of Absence require the participation of others to be executed. Several go one step further, obliging the spectator to participate, perceptually and physically, in the creation of the work – in effect, to produce its meaning.

Hybrid Neutral: Modes of Abstraction and the Social

Art is no longer restricted necessarily to a paradigm of formal values that constitutes or describes an ‘art world’ or aesthetic scheme. Instead, it posits a hybrid network of provisional relations. Hybrid Neutral examines the way in which abstraction, today, in the art matrix, reaches into the social.
