Reconditioned Abstraction

November 15, 1996 - January 4, 1997

Featuring: Charles Clough, Lydia Dona, Moira Dryer, Rochelle Feinstein, Mary Heilmann, Jonathan Lasker, Fabian Marcaccio, David Reed, Philip Taaffe. Guest curator Martin Ball. “The idea of abstraction restored to a usable condition, or “reconditioned,” had its origins in my own practice as a painter, spurred on by a lecture given by artist and critic Saul Ostrow. Ostrow discussed the issue of whether recent abstract painting was new or merely renewed formalism, prompting me to re-evaluate my own views on recent neo-conceptual abstract painting.” - Excerpt from the essay by Martin Ball
