Individual Objectivity

Curated by Abraham Lubelski

September 1-15

All of the artists in Individual Objectivity investigate and develop the concept of creativity through color and form. Whether it appears as a wash across the canvas, is deployed as propaganda, or opens the doors of perception, color is central to work of each artist, not only as an element but also as an idea. This unique exhibition reflects on the aesthetic, cultural, and philosophical meaning of color through the writings of artists and critics, placed within the broader context of anthropology, philosophy, literature, and science. Tracing how artists have affirmed color as a space of pure sensation embraced it as a tool of revolution or denounced it as decorative and even decadent. The exhibition establishes color as a central theme in the story of modern and contemporary art and provides fascinating debates around its history, meaning, and use.
