Mnuchin Gallery is proud to announce Robert Mangold: A Survey 1965 – 2003. The exhibition will trace the evolution of Mangold’s painting across five decades, presenting examples from ten key series from the 1960s through the 2000s. This will be the first solo presentation of Mangold’s work at Mnuchin Gallery, and follows in the gallery’s tradition of presenting important examples of Minimalist painting and sculpture. The exhibition will be on view from February 14 to March 25, 2017, with an opening reception on Tuesday, February 14 from 6:00 – 8:00pm.
The New Yorker
Since 1965, when the earliest work in this concise four-decade survey was made, Mangold has been shaping canvas or Masonite, painting it in a single color, and testing its boundaries with pencil lines. In “Circle Painting #4,” from 1973, the canvas is four feet in diameter, the color is a muted purple, and the pencil drawing is an inscribed square that doesn’t quite fit—two corners overlap the painting’s edges, setting up a strangely ethereal tension.

In Robert Mangold’s gallery exhibitions, normally one sees only his most recent works. But this mini-retrospective of fourteen works, installed on two floors of the Mnuchin Gallery townhouse, provides the material for such an extended narrative, telling the story of his development over four decades.
For Mangold, more than any other artist of his generation, painting is contingent, rather than self-sufficient. It is part of an active relationship.
