"Painting Zero Degree: A Contemporary Trend in Painting"
2001-12-15 until 2002-02-24
Fuller Museum of Art
Brockton, MA, USA United States of America

Painting Zero Degree offers an illuminating look at a particularly fascinating strain of contemporary art. Both art-savvy and casual visitors will appreciate the visually striking, intellectually stimulating, and frequently humorous work on view, learning about recent trends in art as well as about the complex relationship of younger artists to previous generations.

The exhibition explores radical painting of the 1960s and its reinterpretation by contemporary artists. The exhibition traces a trend in painting that began with such visionaries as Robert Ryman (US), John McCracken (US), Daniel Buren (France) and Niele Toroni (Switzerland/France). These artists began to disregard traditional notions of painting such as brush stroke, flatness, etc. in favor of a more expanded exploration of form and environment. The result of this dissention from tradition is a group of works that turn painting upside down and explore new media like wallpaper, linoleum floor installations, cabinet units and three dimensional blocks of color. These four artists form the basis of the exhibition and set the standard for a group of international contemporary artists reacting to this shift such as Fabio Kacero (Argentina), Clay Ketter (US/Sweden), Peter Kogler (Austria), Felipe Mujica (Chile), Gladys Nistor (Argentina/France), Karin Sander (Germany), Pablo Siquier (Argentina) and Sophie Smallhorn (Great Britain).

Painting Zero Degree is a traveling exhibition organized and circulated by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. Guest curator for this exhibition is Carlos Basualdo. The exhibition, tour, and catalogue are made possible, in part, by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, with additional support from the Austrian Cultural Institute, New York, and the ICI Independents. The exhibition is accompanied by a full color catalogue with essays by Carlos Basualdo and art historian Ellen Tepfer.
