Remember the Future

 – , 2016


Pace Prints is pleased to present Remember the Future, a selection of vintage prints in conversation with their contemporary counterparts. The exhibition will be on view October 28—December 17 at 521 West 26th Street, with an opening reception Thursday, October 27, 6-8pm.

In Gene Davis’ large-scale silkscreen Black Watch Series I (1974), evenly spaced vertical stripes in black and gray give way to a dense spectrum of thinner bands. The print has a graphic sensibility, playing with the optical effects of color and parallel lines. Dan Walsh’s Gray Study (2016) is composed of tight, vertical stripes constructed of yarn at a human scale. As the viewer walks the length of the work, light reflects along its aluminum surface.

Louise Nevelson and Leonardo Drew’s kinship in monochromatic, large-scale assemblage is evident. Both known for their experimental techniques, the artists have pushed the boundaries of the printmaking medium over the course of their prolific careers. Drew’s cast paper pulp piece 49P (2015) is a dense, textured field of undulating forms. Nevelson’s small scale Full Moon (1980) is a polyester resin cast multiple, a miniaturized view of her iconic installations.

The work of Nicholas Krushenick evades categorization, straddling the lines between Op and Pop, Ab-Ex and Minimalism. With a graphic touch and a sense of humor, Krushenick’s geometric abstractions call to mind the language of pulp comics and the angular forms of Analytic Cubism. A contemporary master of street and pop, cult favorite KAWS appropriates familiar cartoon imagery from Spongebob to Snoopy, morphing the children’s classics into his own creations using flat graphics or, in the case of Man’s Best Friend (2016), an Abstract Expressionist “hand.”

Also on view will be works by Jean Dubuffet, Ryan McGinness and Sven Lukin.
