Dickinson New York’s summer show features a selection of works, created from 1950 to present, by artists from the Americas. Among the most fascinating is the pairing of a glorious emblem painting by Rubem Valentim, deeply informed by his Afro-Brazilian heritage and Yoruba Candomblé and Umbanda traditions, and a visually complementary geometric abstraction by Judith Lauand, which reaches a similar aesthetic point via a very different European Concretist route. Joining this conversation are works by Lygia Clark, Victor Magariños, Lygia Pape, Luiz Sacilotto, Mira Schendel, Alfredo Volpi and others. Also on view are wonderful examples by Dan Colen, Joseph Cornell, Victoria Gitman, Martin Kippenberger and Ed Ruscha.
