"The show focuses on contemporary portraiture," noted co-curator David Kratz. "From Eric Fischl's expressive realism to Mickalene Thomas's in-your-face presentation to Will Cotton's idealized perfection to the tautness of Jacob Hayes' everyday scenes, we get a pretty complete picture of how contemporary artists are looking at the world around them and, I dare say, themselves."
This exhibition allows viewers to slow down and consider the story present in every human face. This theme is closely tied to the Academy's founding mission of promoting the tradition of figurative work in the context of contemporary art. The New York Academy of Art is a not-for-profit education and cultural institution that combines intensive training with active discourse. The Academy employs major exhibitions, an educational program, and a speaker series in order to serves as a creative and intellectual center for artists.
will be on view Friday, July 28 through Sunday, September 17. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 28, from 6 to 8 p.m., and an artist talk moderated by the curators will be presented on Friday, August 25. Admission to the opening reception is free.
Southampton Arts Center is located at 25 Jobs Lane in Southampton. For more information call 631-283-0967 or visit www.southamptonartscenter.org.
