The West Coast Avant-Garde: 1950 - Present

July 17 - September 8, 2015

Kohn Gallery is pleased to announce The West Coast Avant-Garde: 1950 – Present, an exciting group show spanning generations of California-based artists whose varied practices gave rise to a style that resonates in both art history and younger artists today. Many of the most influential post-war American art movements are closely tied to the West Coast, despite being written out of the art historical record until very recently. Pop, Light and Space, action painting, assemblage, Minimalism, Conceptualism, and Hard Edge, to name a few, all had roots in California. Many of these California-based artists knew, or knew of, each other and together developed an avant-garde sensibility that transcended their stylistic or generational differences.

Object/Space
Robert Ryman + Giorgio Morandi

September 19 - October 31, 2015

Kohn Gallery is pleased to present a two-person show featuring the work of Robert Ryman (b. 1930) and Giorgio Morandi (1890 – 1964) who each, across space and time, dedicated themselves to the investigation of object and environment. Using a reductive visual vocabulary, Ryman and Morandi harness the nuances of light and shadow to complicate perception either within the painting or without.
