The collages and sculptures of Abstract Expressionist painter Esteban Vicente are paired in an exhibition on view through March 26, 2011 at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery (100 Washington Square East, New York, NY). Concrete Improvisations: Collages and Sculpture by Esteban Vicente reexamines the career of this “artist’s artist” on the tenth anniversary of his death in 2001.
We can’t wait to see how Vicente transformed materials like newsprint and scraps of paper into the over 80 compelling works that make up this exhibition.
A suite of public programs accompany this exhibition, including a lecture at the Institute of Fine Arts’ Duke Mansion (1 East 78th Street) by Assistant Professor Daniel Haxall of Kutztown University (PA). Professor Haxall will discuss the art of Esteban Vicente, the tradition of Spanish collage and its reinterpretation by the Abstract Expressionists at mid-century.
