"Driven to Abstraction : 10 Paintings by Jef Bourgeau"
2009-07-25 until 2009-08-29
Jane Speaks Modern Art
Pontiac, MI, USA United States of America

Jane Speaks Modern Art is delighted to announce the exhibition Driven to Abstraction: 10 New Paintings by Jef Bourgeau. Since he began exhibiting in the early 1990s, recent Kresge Prize nominee Jef Bourgeau has inspired controversy. His practice, which is considered by some to be a provocation against the art world itself, essentially involves the remaking of art and artists, both imagined and real. Bourgeau has been a vexing figure for many and his [UTF-8?]ā•˛interventionsā•ˇ and activities at the Museum of New Art (MONA) have continued to be viewed as a subversion of traditional notions of artistic practice and integrity.

Works that are too good to be true! - Edna Pruett, curator

When viewed in person, they will surely reveal themselves! - Carlos Reed, director >

One of our goals, other than selling art, is to educate our [UTF-8?]audience, said Christina Speaks, gallery owner and daughter of the late Jane Speaks. You can learn a tremendous amount by looking at an object that is not quite right. For the public, it can seem like magic that one is right and one is not. Jefs art demystifies that process.
