"David Salle"
2000-01-18 until 2000-05-07
Guggenheim
Bilboa, , ES Spain

David Salle (Norman, United States, 1952) is one of the most important American painters to enter the scene in the early 80s. His work played an influential part in the resurgence at that time of large-scale figurative painting. Salle, like many artists of his generation, has accumulated a rich visual vocabulary inspired by countless images. Adapting scenes from art history, advertising design and popular culture-to name only a few of his sources-he creates a combination of diverse cultural references.

Each of his works purposely overshadows the coherent linear narrative by juxtaposing unlike elements, reflecting the complex mass-media production that dominates contemporary human experience.

The retrospective, organized by the Stedelijk Museum of Amsterdam, brings together some fifty works offering a broad panorama of this artist's career from his earlier years until now.
