"Paintings & Other Indulgences" is the first museum survey of prolific New York artist Walter Robinson's paintings dating from 1979 to 2014. The 80 included works offer a broad selection of his work, including pulp-novel romance paintings, still lifes, depictions of Lands' End clothing models, and more. Moore is hosting the only East Coast presentation of this show, so come see it before it concludes.
Through an audacious blending of drawing, sculpture, performance and photography, New York and Berlin-based artist Holly Zausner creates mesmerizing visual dialogues between the artist, the city and architecture. "10th Avenue 10011" features a series of six large-scale photographs that explore temporality and permanence, stasis and movement, and demonstrate Zausner's ability to transform the physicality of performance into a form of drawing.
"Orange Alert" is a site-specific installation by New Orleans-based artist Sally Heller, who creates recognizable yet improbable landscapes constructed from cultural detritus. A modern-day bricoleur, savvy cultural hacker and urban archaeologist, Heller assembles a litany of mundane materials and cultural castoffs into recognizable yet improbable environments that cleverly fuse macro and micro, architectural and organic, artifice and nature.
The Art in America critic, co-founder of Printed Matter Inc., and former editor of Artnet Magazine arrived in New York in 1968 to study art history at Columbia University, but he could paint, too.
By the early 1980s, he was showing his colorful renditions of pulp magazine illustrations at Metro Pictures. More recently, his paintings have depicted solitary cigarette packs and liquor bottles as iconic objects.
Robinson's Moore retrospective was organized by Barry Blinderman, director of the University Galleries at Illinois State University.
