BLACK + WHITE November 5 – 30, 2001
An exhibition of black and white paintings, installations, drawings, sculptures and photographs by a wide- ranging group of Post-War artists will be on view at Dickinson Roundell Inc., 19 East 66th Street, New York from November 5th – 30th, 2001.
A highlight of the exhibition is Damien Hirst’s Lustral Sertraline, a rare spot painting from 1992. Lustral Sertraline is one of only eight black and white works from Hirst’s series of spot paintings. These works, in particular, exemplify the most abstract aspects of Hirst’s work in paint.
Two exceptional works by Donald Judd epitomize the apex of Minimalist art in the Post-War period. Judd’s 1969 galvanized steel bull nose progression, Untitled, combines ready made industrial materials with a predefined sculptural formula. Untitled (Black) is a fine example of Judd’s late work dating from
1990. Again, using modern manufactured materials, Judd created a stacked modular wall installation that highlights the structural nature of his work.
Another feature of the exhibition is Richard Serra’s Untitled (on to the corner) from 1985. This work is a rare two-panel wall mounted work that combines the sculptural aspects of Serra’s work with his works on paper. The faces of the panels are covered with Serra’s characteristic black paint stick leaving the base steel exposed around the sides.
Also included in the exhibition is a 1960 drawing by Eva Hesse, a Vanessa Beecroft digital c-print entitled US Navy Seals, dated 2000, and an Andy Warhol silkscreen on paper, Electric Chair.
Additional works by Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Lucio Fontana, Anselm Kiefer, Cy Twombly, Dan Flavin, On Kawara and Gerhard Richter will also be included in the exhibition.
