Craig F. Starr Gallery opened its doors to Notations, a group exhibition including works by John Baldessari, Mel Bochner, Jonathan Borofsky, Heinz Mack, Eleanore Mikus, Robert Morris, Barnett Newman, Georges Noël, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, Edda Renouf, Joel Shapiro, Lenore Tawney, and Cy Twombly. This exhibition, which will be on view by appointment until April 17th, juxtaposes a range of approaches to the idea of “notes” or “notations,” all tracing that fine line where mark-making, the written or printed word, and drawing coexist.
Craig F. Starr Gallery opened its doors to Souvenirs: Cornell Duchamp Johns Rauschenberg, an exhibition which brings together four artistic giants of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. While Johns continues working today, the influence of Cornell, Duchamp, and Rauschenberg remains pervasive in contemporary art even in their absence. Souvenirs distills their rich and myriad connections down to just six exemplary masterworks—all on loan from prestigious private and public collections—which are now on view in a single intimate space. Focusing on the theme, process, and function of the souvenir, the exhibition puts these carefully selected works into close correspondence.
