LANDESCAPE: NEW VISIONS OF THE LANDSCAPE FROM THE EARLY 20TH AND 21ST CENTURIESMarch 17 - June 16, 2019

At the turn of the 20th century trends in painting and art history were dramatically challenged. The introduction of experimental styles of the European avant garde at the 1913 Armory Show in New York astonished the American public. The show served as a catalyst for American painters who pioneered a distinct artistic language and broke with tradition. Early modern vanguards such as Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Alfred Maurer, Georgia O’Keeffe, Helen Torr and Marguerite Zorach introduced a radically new visual lexicon to landscape painting. LandEscape: New Visions of the Landscape from the Early 20th and 21st Centuries draws on the artistic connections among these historical figures and examines the genre’s recent resurgence. Presenting works by leading contemporary artists such as Jo Baer, Alex Katz, April Gornik, Lois Dodd, Shara Hughes, and Kerry James Marshall, LandEscape brings together two distant generations that continue to both re-examine and to challenge our perspective of the landscape.
