This is the first time that all four paintings comprising the historic group have been shown together. The spirited variations within each primary trio (where red can range from cadmium to almost black, or blue from azure to indigo) are rich with interpretative possibility, like musical chords in major and minor keys.

Opening: January 17, 6-8PM
550 West 21st Street

1964

“Frozen Lakes” at Artist Space
January 20 March 24, 2013
Opening: January 19, 6–8 PM
38 Greene Street #3
In his essay accompanying the 1977 exhibition “Pictures at Artists Space,” and in a subsequent text published by October in 1979, the art historian Douglas Crimp introduced the work of a generation of artists, and their use of “quotation,” “excerptation,” “framing,” and “staging,” that has since become synonymous with the postmodern relationship to pictures. Frozen Lakes examines the prominence that these artistic strategies have for a generation of artists born after “Pictures.” Contributing artists: Shadi Habib Allah, Ed Atkins, Banu Cennetoglu, Aaron Flint Jamison, Tobias Kaspar, Metahaven, Ken Okiishi, Charlotte Prodger, James Richards, and Slavs and Tatars
