This event has ended.

Greene Naftali Gallery and Matthew Marks Gallery announce the exhibition Painting: Now and Forever, Part II. The exhibition is organized on the tenth anniversary of the show Painting: Now and Forever, Part I, held at the Pat Hearn Gallery and Matthew Marks Gallery.

That exhibition was a highly subjective, celebratory survey of contemporary painting, and it is in this spirit that the current show has been organized. The artists included in the 1998 exhibition were Franz Ackermann, Diti Almog, John Armleder, Michael Bevilacqua, Ashley Bickerton, Robin Bruch, Peter Cain, Casey Cook, George Condo, Pat de Groot, Carroll Dunham, Jeff Elrod, Paul Feeley, Bernard Frize, Maureen Gallace, Joanne Greenbaum, Peter Halley, Mary Heilmann, Gary Hume, Jacqueline Humphries, Jutta Koether, Yayoi Kusama, Sherrie Levine, Brice Marden, Helen Marden, Keith Mayerson, John Miller, Elizabeth Murray, Kenneth Noland, Jack Pierson, Sigmar Polke, Larry Poons, Monique Prieto, Richard Prince, Blake Rayne, Matthew Ritchie, Lisa Ruyter, Suzy Spence, Sturtevant, Philip Taaffe, Luc Tuymans, Andy Warhol, John Wesley, Sue Williams, and Terry Winters.

It was decided that none of the artists who exhibited in Part I should be included in Part II with one exception. As one of the Pat Hearn Gallery's original artists, Mary Heilmann exemplifies both the vital spirit of that gallery, as well as the continuing relevance of painting as a contemporary practice.
