Light Years, Jack Whitten, 1971-1973
Abstract artist Jack Whitten's first solo exhibition in New England, "Light Years" features several never-before exhibited monumental canvases created by this pioneering African-American artist in the early 1970s. Curated by Katy Siegel. Gerald S. and Sandra Fineberg Gallery.
Image Machine: Andy Warhol and Photography
A groundbreaking exhibition featuring images of celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Gianni Versace, Cheryl Tiegs and Jackie Kennedy examines the central role of photography in Warhol’s art and its relationship to his portrait painting and documentation of the artist’s social life. Curated by Joseph Ketner and co-organized by the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati. Lois Foster Gallery.
Collection in Focus: Al Loving
This spotlight exhibition features two works — Self-Portrait #23 and Untitled, a mixed-media collage — by Al Loving, a prominent abstract painter and collage artist whose work explored the ways color, space, line and form play out in vibrant counterpoint. Mildred S. Lee Gallery.
Minimal and More: 60s and 70s Sculpture from the Collection
In tribute to the Rose’s 1996 exhibition More Than Minimal: Feminism and Abstraction in the ‘70s, this show brings together three works by female artists Jackie Ferrara, Mary Miss, and Jackie Winsor — and presents them alongside sculptures from the collection by four male artists active in the 1960s: Carl Andre, Anthony Caro, Donald Judd, and Robert Morris. Gerald S. and Sandra Fineberg Gallery.
