This summer GL STRAND presents painting from the New York art scene. The 11 carefully selected artists’ multiplicity of subjects and painterly idioms demonstrate the power of painting.
Paint New York is at one and the same time a tribute to painting and to the city that has for so many decades been considered one of the absolute centres of the international art scene. Painting has continuously been a part of pace-setting exhibitions and artistic-aesthetic movements in the American context. It is precisely this strand of art history that the exhibition picks up. It gathers a number of the most progressive artists of these years—some with long, important international careers behind them, others on their way forward; but common to them all is the fact that they attribute great importance for their art to New York, and that each formulates an individual, important position in painting today.
