Reflections on Artistic License
Tuesday, December 17, 2019, 6:30pm
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
In this series of conversations, the six artist-curators of Artistic License, currently on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York through January 12, are invited to reflect on their interpretations of the museum’s collection and the themes that informed their curatorial selections. Richard Prince’s presentation investigates the uncannily coherent formal qualities of the museum’s international holdings of abstract painting and sculpture from the 1940s and ’50s, and ultimately questions how taste is formed. To attend the event, purchase tickets at www.guggenheim.org.

Moore Building, Miami
On the occasion of Art Basel Miami Beach 2018, Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch are pleased to present Pop Minimalism | Minimalist Pop, their fourth collaboration at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District. This group exhibition explores the intersections and legacies of two major American art movements of the 1960s—Pop art and Minimalism—and the ways in which features of Minimalism have been incorporated into a variety of contemporary art practices. While these two art movements are typically seen to represent opposing artistic responses to the legacy of Abstract Expressionism, the work in Pop Minimalism | Minimalist Pop highlights points of common conceptual approaches and mutual exchange. Work by Jeff Koons, Adam McEwen, Sarah Morris, and Richard Prince is included.

Moore Building, Miami
On the occasion of Art Basel Miami Beach 2017, Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch are pleased to present Abstract/Not Abstract, their third collaboration at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District. One of the great innovations of modernism, abstract painting continues to inspire and challenge artists. To make a fresh abstraction today following all the remarkable achievements of the School of Paris and the New York School is a daunting proposition. Yet through the use of innovative approaches, techniques, and technologies, this generation of artists is creating complex and astonishing new work that revitalizes the abstract tradition. Abstract/Not Abstract will include work by contemporary artists who redefine abstraction for our time.
