Join us for an in-person walkthrough of the current iteration of Ways of Seeing: Three Takes on the Jack Shear Drawing Collection, led by artist and curator Arlene Shechet with Jack Shear, artist, curator, and President of the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation.
In the first installation of Ways of Seeing, Jack Shear adopted a unique approach to hanging his expansive collection, placing drawings alongside, directly on top of, or abutting other works on the basis of intuited visual affinities regardless of context or historical provenance. Arlene Shechet’s interpretation of Shear’s collection, on view through December 23, is presented on the heels of Shear’s own installation. Taking an equally inventive approach, Shechet has chosen artworks by a diverse group of figures, some of whom featured in Shear’s installation and many of whom did not, including Lee Bontecou, Edward Burne-Jones, Salvador Dalí, Elaine de Kooning, Robert Gober, Marsden Hartley, Lee Lozano, Agnes Martin, Henri Matisse, Elizabeth Murray, Jim Nutt, Odilon Redon, Georges Seurat, Al Taylor, and Joseph Yoakum, among many others.
Please note that masks and proof of vaccination are required in order to attend this event.
