This group exhibition featured nine emerging artists: Joachim Bandau (Germany), Peter Dudek (Brooklyn), William Duty (Brooklyn), Nils Gjerdevic (Copenhagen, Denmark), Karl Jensen (Brooklyn), Kathleen McShane (Philadelphia), Ann Pibal (Brooklyn), Suzanne Song (New Haven), and Caroline Van Damme (Brussels, Belgium). Abstract Tendencies was characterized by arrangements of shapes and colors suggesting a tendency toward formal abstraction shared by each artist. The selected artists either re-examined concepts and philosophies of abstraction or presented unabashed representations of the real and everyday. The exhibition, curated through The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program, is part of the ongoing Selections series.
