This event has ended.

David Nolan Gallery presents Wars, an exhibition of work spanning nearly 80 years by several generations of artists, including works by Sue Coe, Steve DiBenedetto, Nicole Eisenman, Ian Hamilton Finlay, George Grosz, Antonius Höckelmann, Sanya Kantarovsky, Roberto Matta, Jonathan Meese, Ludwig Meidner, Wardell Milan, Ebecho Muslimova, Peter Saul, and others. Centering around a 1940 painting by George Grosz – entitled Self-Portrait with Bird of Prey and Rat – the exhibition explores various representations of warfare, conflict, and self-expression. Taking Grosz and his artistic legacy as a conceptual starting point, artists who today continue his line of enquiry, such as Sanya Kantarovsky and Ebecho Muslimova, have created new works for the exhibition. At the same time, works by major established artists such as Roberto Matta and Peter Saul are presented as extensions of Grosz’s radically original outlook.
