R. H. Quaytman: Passing Through The Opposite of What It Approaches, Chapter 25

@ The Renaissance Society

5811 S Ellis Ave

Opening Sunday, January 6th, from 4PM - 7PM

On view through Friday, February 17th

Join us January 6th from 4-7pm for the opening reception of a solo exhibition by R.H. Quaytman titled “Passing Through The Opposite of What It Approaches, Chapter 25”. There will be an artist talk in Kent Hall, Room 107 at 5pm.

Quaytman’s practice is to create installations of painted panels termed ‘chapters.’ The ongoing chapters, begun in 2001, explore formalist and conceptual variations of ideas about painting, as well as the poetic and grammatical possibilities of photography-based imagery. The instal
lations combine abstraction, often with optical effects, and images related to the sites in which the paintings are first exhibited. For the Renaissance Society exhibition, the artist has been researching the history of the museum from the 1970s and 80s, a time when the museum’s director, Susanne Ghez, was presenting important early exhibitions of conceptual art, at the beginning of what would come to be her internationally influential career. Ghez is celebrating her 40th anniversary as Director of The Renaissance Society this year.
