Oranges and Sardines: Conversations on Abstract Painting

Hammer Museum
November 9, 2008 – February 8, 2009

Oranges and Sardines is an exhibition of art chosen by six contemporary abstract painters – Mark Grotjahn, Wade Guyton, Mary Heilmann, Amy Sillman, Charline von Heyl, and Christopher Wool. The artists’ choices developed during many conversations with Gary Garrels, the curator of the exhibition. The artists each chose one of their own recent paintings as well as work by other artists including Paul Klee, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, Eva Hesse, Pablo Picasso, Dieter Roth and others.

The title for the exhibition was inspired by the poem “Why I Am Not a Painter” by Frank O’Hara. The poem is featured in the exhibition and the catalogue.

Manhattan Noon: Photographs by Gus Powell

Museum of the City of New York
Exhibition: Dec. 15, 2007 – May 18, 2008

From mcny.org:

The midday meanderings of New Yorkers on their lunch breaks, famously captured by Frank O’Hara in his 1964 collection Lunch Poems, are the subject of Manhattan Noon, the first large-scale New York presentation of the recent photographs of Gus Powell. The exhibition features some 30 color images, taken by Powell during his lunch hour, that capture the city’s inhabitants in, as O’Hara wrote, “the noisy splintered glare of a Manhattan noon.”

More info from the Syracuse University website:

The University Library’s Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) current exhibition is entitled Imagine! Painters and Poets of the New York School. The exhibition is part of the Syracuse Symposium, which for 2006/2007 has chosen imagination as its theme.

On display is material from the recently processed Grace Hartigan Papers, as well as from the University Art Collection, the Grove Press Archives, and SCRC’s extensive holdings of art and literary magazines from the 1950s. Grace Hartigan (1922–) was a major participant in the explosion of creative energy that was the New York artistic and literary scene of the early 1950s. An important abstract expressionist painter, Hartigan was included in the famous show Twelve Americans at the Museum of Modern Art in 1956. Her friends and correspondents included Frank O’Hara, Larry Rivers, Barbara Guest, and Joan Mitchell.
