This event has ended.

This show "Abstraction Revisited" examines the work of various contemporary artists engaged in abstraction, alongside examples from some of the first-generation masters of Abstract Expressionism. The works were chosen for their visual impact and the strong dialogue they establish between the first generation and today's abstractionists.

This juxtaposition seeks to shed light on the parallels and differences within a practice which shows no sign of fading, indeed which is more vital and innovative than ever, as evidenced by a surge of interest from artists, critics and art lovers alike. While the younger artists acknowledge their illustrious predecessors, they are less doctrinaire, willing to mix genres and media, from painting and sculpture to photography, video and film. They demonstrate their independence and individuality within an idiom which remains as vital today as it was when artists first sought freedom from representation.
