Sundaram Tagore Singapore presents New York Abstraction, a group show of work by artists who have been associated with the gallery since its inception in 2000.
The paintings, sculptures and installations in this show shed light on major themes of the New York School—an informal coalition of artists in the early 1940s, including Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko, who used abstraction to express powerfully emotional and introspective ideas. It was during this time that uniquely American artistic movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Action painting, Minimalism and Pop art emerged, forever shifting the art world’s focus. In addition to cementing New York City’s place as the epicenter of the Western art world, the work that came out of the New York School continues to inspire new generations of artists, including those whose work is on view in this exhibition.
Included in this show are Susan Weil, Chun Kwang Young, Joan Vennum, Bruce Porter, Hosook Kang, Ricardo Mazal, Stan Gregory, Golnaz Fathi, Miya Ando, Kim Joon, Nathan Slate Joseph and Lee Waisler.
