Maybe Maybe Not
Christopher Wool and the Hill Collection

February 9–June 28, 2019
Hill Art Foundation, New York
hillartfoundation.org

Maybe Maybe Not inaugurates the exhibition program of the Hill Art Foundation, a cultural center conceived to offer broad public access to the incredible collection of works assembled by Janine and J. Tomilson Hill over the past four decades. This presentation of paintings, works on paper, photographs, and prints encapsulates the evolution of Christopher Wool’s career, ranging from his early experiments with ready-made forms in pattern and word paintings to his more recent explorations of spontaneous gesture and digital intervention.

Unpacking
The Marciano Collection

Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles
marcianoartfoundation.org

Unpacking: The Marciano Collection was the debut presentation of the collection’s holdings organized by Philipp Kaiser. The title and theme of the show were derived from Walter Benjamin’s essay “Unpacking My Library,” in which he discusses the chaotic potentiality inherent in unpacking and recontextualizing one’s collection. Work by Mark Grotjahn, Jennifer Guidi, Thomas Houseago, Alex Israel, Takashi Murakami, Albert Oehlen, Sterling Ruby, Cindy Sherman, Franz West, Jonas Wood, and Christopher Wool was included.

Pretty Raw
After and Around Helen Frankenthaler

February 11–June 7, 2015
Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts
www.brandeis.edu

Pretty Raw takes the artist Helen Frankenthaler as a lens through which to refocus our vision of modernist art over the past fifty years. In this version, decoration, humor, femininity and masculinity, the everyday, pleasure, and authorial control take center stage. The exhibition, curated by Katy Siegel, features works by artists from the 1950s through the present who have found personal, social, and political meaning in materiality. Work by Helen Frankenthaler, Mike Kelley, Sterling Ruby, Andy Warhol, Mary Weatherford, and Christopher Wool is included.
