Temporary Exhibit – The Maslow Galleries
Forming The Maslow Collection: A Reflection on the New York City Art Scene in the ’80s and ’90s
February 7 – May 25, 2020
The New York art scene of the 1980s and ‘90s, which was inspired by changing technologies, globalization, industry, and pop culture, continues to influence contemporary art. Featuring select pieces from The Maslow Collection, Forming the Maslow Collection, consists of art created within and reflective of this pivotal movement in art history.
Marking fourteen years since The Maslow Collection has been exhibited at the Everhart Museum, this exhibition offers new insight not only into how the Collection was formed, but also into the many ways in which these works and the artists who made them continue to impact the art world. Six genres of artmaking, represented by works amassed by Marilyn and Richard Maslow, are examined, including abstractionism, conceptualism, documentary photography, minimalism, neo-expressionism, and pop art.
Featuring work by:
Bernd & Hilla Becher · Jasper Johns · Ellsworth Kelly · Sol LeWitt · Roy Lichtenstein · Robert Rauschenberg · Ed Ruscha · Julian Schnabel · Frank Stella · Andy Warhol
The exhibition is co-curated by Francesca Saldan, Curator, The Everhart Museum and Ryan Ward, Curator, The Maslow Collection.
