was part of the same cadre of queer creatives as Cy in the ’60s and had no small part to play in the story of Modernism himself.
Polly was one of the hits I remember from Abstract Painting, Once Removed. Her work is literally removed from the constraint of a traditional, rectangular canvas (like Rhia and Meg). Image below is from that time frame.
More (her work has moved back onto the wall as she explores new iconography)
Juxtapoz has some images up of Scott’s work process for below as well as an interview.
has new work up at NOMA (through the end of the year) that examines the legacy of plantation economies and their relationship to the environmental and infrastructural issues of our current age.
Nanda gets a shout out from Artforum (unfortunately because her six decade career as a conceptual and installation artist came to and end this month).
Was reading the print edition of Artforum when the image below grabbed me. Which lead to reading this interesting interview about the themes that- like the disparate materials she uses- are woven, literally, into her work.
Kevin, like me, has made objects and paintings and despite appearances has no interest in geometry as a topic or content.
The link above is from #Geoform, an online scholarly resource, international forum, and curatorial project of #juliekarabenick that focuses on the use of geometric form and structure in contemporary abstract art.
“Asawa lived an extraordinary life independent of her incredible body of work. Her path was a series of trials overcome and small paradises found—from internment camps in America to, later, a creative coming-of-age at Black Mountain College and in San Francisco, where she lived until her death in 2013.
Her legacy of generosity and openness to the world continues to grow along with her reputation as an artist, which was underappreciated during her lifetime despite everyone from Josef Albers to Buckminster Fuller declaring her genius indisputable. But that has been changing, year by year—just a few weeks ago, the US Postal Service announced they would be featuring Asawa on a new stamp out this fall.”
