The Inaugural Figure of A New American Realism

Stephen Posen’s cross-continent exhibition to go on view at Vito Schnabel Projects 

If art should not be appreciated outside of its historical context, relevance and significance, New York-based artist Stephen Posen’s works have a lot to offer. When the prevailing abstraction began to get out of the spotlight in the late 60s, Posen developed a vision and style, both astonishingly modern and fresh, expressed in his bold illusional paintings. 

On view from May 2nd through June 23rd in New York, Threads: Paintings from the 1960s and ‘70s will then travel to Europe, presenting artist’s works in Switzerland starting July 28th. 

Vito Schnabel is putting together the first significant presentation to revisit Posen’s breakthrough works, since the artist’s debut at NY Soho gallery O.K.Harris nearly five decades ago.

Stephen Posen的跨大陆展览将在Vito Schnabel Project展出

如果说艺术的历史背景、相关性和意义不值得欣赏,那么纽约的艺术家Stephen Posen的作品就有很多值得称道的地方。当60年代后期流行的抽象开始淡出人们视线时,Posen发展了一种视觉和风格,既现代又新鲜,在他大胆的幻象画中表现出来。

时间,纽约5月2日至6月23日,主题:从20世纪60年代到70年代的绘画将于7月28日开始前往欧洲,并在瑞士展出艺术家的作品。

自从艺术家在50年前在纽约Soho艺术馆O.K.Harris展览以来,Vito Schnabel正在整理相关资料,以重温Posen突破性的作品。
