Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s / Whitney Museum of American Art (USA)

Emma Amos
In the early 1960s, Emma Amos began to create imagery that shifted fluidly between abstraction and representation. She was the youngest and only female member of Spiral—a New York–based collective founded by Charles Alston, Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, and Hale Woodruff in 1963 to consider art’s relationship to civil rights. Amos resisted the idea of a singular Black aesthetic, which put her at odds with artists who insisted on direct, often figurative, depictions to address racial politics. As she later stated: “Every time I think about color it’s a political statement.” Continuer de lire Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s / Whitney Museum of American Art (USA)

Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again / Whitney Museum of American Art (USA)

Few American artists are as ever-present and instantly recognizable as Andy Warhol (1928–1987).

This exhibition—the first Warhol retrospective organized in the U.S. since 1989—reconsiders the work of one of the most inventive, influential, and important American artists.

Sarah Morris – Portrait à Charge / Collège Jean MONNET (FR)

Tantôt graphiques ou représentationnelles, les peintures de Sarah Morris fonctionnent comme des extraits agrandis d’un récit inconnu. Puisant ces sujets dans la presse à scandale, l’artiste isole des mots ou images qui vont venir occuper la totalité de l’espace pictural à travers des grands aplats de couleur. Un peu à part dans sa production, mais réalisé dans le même souci d’un impact visuel immédiat, Sunglasses est un autoportrait tiré d’un film tourné pour un autre artiste.
