The Saturday Post: Abstract America: New Painting and Sculpture @ Saatchi Gallery
From May 29th till September 13th, a huge exhibition by the gallery, which presents the works of a radical new generation of American abstract painters, whose works surf between fresh cultural expression and postmodernist remix effortlessly, in the face of virtual realities and quicksilver new technologies. The artists grouped together in this publication are daring and inventive, their strategies broad and exhilarating, their exploration of abstract painting at this critical juncture invaluable.
Includes Dan Colen, but also Joe Bradley, Jedediah Caesar, Patrick Hill, Matt Johnson, and many more.
The Saatchi has also published the Abstract America Catalogue, an amazing book in relation with the show.
