ALEX KATZ: CUT OUTS
March 8 – April 14, 2018 at 515 West 27th Street
Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of “Cut Outs” sculpture editioned by Alex Katz. “Cut Outs” demonstrates the artist’s ongoing investigation into the properties of visual perception and the brilliance of surface as represented and rendered in the human figure. Since the 1950s, this dedication to figurative realism—informed by the scale and power of Abstract Expressionism and utilizing the graphic language of advertising that anticipated Pop—has marked Katz as one of the most inventive and technically achieved artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
ROBERT POLIDORI: FRA ANGELICO / OPUS OPERANTUS
March 8 – April 14, 2018 at 297 Tenth Avenue
Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the debut presentation of a selection of Robert Polidori’s large-scale color photographs of the frescoes of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) contained in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence. In the canon of art history, these works, executed in the birthplace of the Renaissance, give us a full sense of the period’s renewed commitment to the life of the spirit. Polidori visited the Convento di San Marco numerous times over the course of 2010 to capture the solemnity and sheer force of the frescoes and their reflection, through the depiction of the life of Christ, of the universal condition of mankind.
SAINT CLAIR CEMIN: OEDIPUS
March 8 – April 14, 2018 at 293 Tenth Avenue
Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculptures by Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin. This will be Cemin’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Oedipus takes on the renowned and influential Greek tragedy in order to interrogate the commanding force that human action can impose over what we perceive to be ‘destiny.’ Furthering the artist’s investigation into the symbolism of ancient mythology, the exhibition presents a new, twenty-part work alongside three sculptures that act as monuments to the power of language and family.
