Press Release

ADAA: The Art Show

New York
March 4 - 8, 2015

At this year's edition of the ADAA Art Show, Mnuchin Gallery (Booth B3) will present a curated selection of important Color Field and Hard-Edge paintings.  The presentation will feature Tzadik (1958), a superlative example from Morris Louis’s breakthrough Veil series, in which the artist poured layers of thinned acrylic paint onto unstretched canvases to achieve mysterious curtains of color.  A pair of Frank Stella Concentric Square paintings from 1977-1978 will serve as bold geometric counterpoints to Louis’s enigmatic washes.  Composed of precise bands of vibrantly contrasting hues, these paintings’ methodical experimentation with color and value results in a subtle play on perspectival space.

Taking in the ADAA Art Show, Where Everybody Knows Your Name
March 4, 2015

There is an old John Travolta line from “Welcome Back, Kotter,” where, grinning and surrounded by friends, he turns to the camera and says simply, “This is my place, and these are my people.”

 

No better words describe The Art Show, founded in 1988, just as the great art boom that has lasted on and off for nearly three decades, was just about to take off.
