Artsy notes some rising Chinese artists- the surge is apparently also pulling Zao into our consciousness which is better late than never (he passed in 2013) as he was quite interesting.
is featured in Abstraction in the Black Diaspora, which is curated by Tariku.
John Yau looks back (posthumously) at Anne’s career as a spiritual quest (personally I like her sculpture best).
is represented in South Asian Art which explores Modernism iterations from this region (similar to Taking Shape).
Hyperallergic says we should pay attention to the rich, vibrant worlds Thornton created during his time with us (spoiler- not all of them are abstracted).
Can’t mention Kazimir and not probably the best known Russian abstractionist. The impact of Concerning the Spiritual in Art has been profound, for good or ill, in how the idea of Art changed in the 20th Century.
Probably the best known of the Russian avant-garde, he was also El‘s mentor. Hard to imagine an artist who did more simultaneously to mythologize the artist and democratize artistic practice.
I follow a hashtag for Rita on IG- she show with Hauser & Wirth if you want more. Here’s a recent artist talk also.
Saw in Keltie‘s IG feed that we lost Jackie recently.
Known as landscape architect more so than a visual artist, Pinterest though Roberto’s drawings like below would appeal given my interest in Fernand and Ben and El and Le Corbusier and Alice…
Another British Modernist (though later to the game than Ben, and multidisciplinary as well) that’s worth a look.
Encountered Selma in Lucy’s IG feed (who I encountered in Prosaic97‘s)
