Curated by Shari Lin Fischberg
Recently deceased, Barkley Hendricks will be highlighted by Jack Shainman Gallery in New York City. We are currently exploring curatorial and conceptual connections between Hopper and Hendrick’s images where each has leaned into using compositions “figures within the city” and “figure-less in the country.” Jack Shainman will be emphasizing figurative compositions, whereas Edward Hopper House will be widening the view to include Hendricks’ landscapes. Hendricks’ landscapes have a similar single focus and abstracted quality as Hopper’s landscape. Opening a “porthole” to views both sublime and antiseptic, Hendricks’ landscapes hint at a similar aloneness often seen in Hopper’s landscapes.
Ellsworth Kelly: The River Lithographs
Curated by Carole Perry
The (Hudson) River was a major source of inspiration for Edward Hopper in his youth. Ellsworth Kelly’s (1923-2015) interest in the river and the effects of light and shadow, as well the inspiration of Paris, have echoes in Hopper’s work. This exhibition will highlight that connection.
Adrien Broom: Holding Space
Informed by a rich education in fine and decorative art in Florence and London, Broom’s photographs combine the sensuality of classical painting with the modern techniques of photography. Broom has recently partnered with Historic Artist’s Homes and Studios and The American Writers Museum's affiliate program to create enlivened images of historic artist’s and writer’s homes. With the Mark Twain House, Florence Griswold House, Alice Austen house and soon the Pollock-Krasner house, Edward Hopper’s House is the photographer’s favorite artist. Broom currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
