Exhibition:
"Signs"
Date
April 27 - July 7 1985
Description
"Despite the recent vogue for what rapidly became known as "neoexpressionism," that predominantly discursive style of richly painted figurative distortions engineered to evoke primal scream reverberations in the viewer, some artists were seizing upon a more distant, intellectual approach to the same cultural syndromes that had generated this emotional expurgation. Rather than delving into their psyches, the SIGNS artists responded in kind, as it were, usually issuing a message, often a warning of sorts, which would be delivered in the same or a similar medium that the artists felt was creating the very condition they were critiquing."
