This event has ended.

Sonja Sekula was born in Lucerne, Switzerland in 1918 and moved to New York in 1936. Joining the burgeoning 1940s–50s artistic community of New York, Sekula mingled with expatriate Surrealists in André Breton’s milieu and was friendly with Abstract Expressionists including Robert Motherwell and Jackson Pollock. The period from the early 1940s through the end of Sekula’s life in 1963 illustrates the artist’s experimentation, distinctive mark-making, and poetic musings that define her multidimensional approach and diverse styles. Her early works emphasize biomorphic forms and the painterly style of European Modernism, while Sekula’s later works oscillate between Surrealism and that of the newly emerging tendencies of Abstract Expressionism.
