Alex Katz: Assembly II

March 6, 2014 - June 29, 2014

The Paul J. Schupf Wing for the Works of Alex Katz

Curated by Diana Tuite

Alluding to artist Alex Katz’s preoccupation with the sociability of forms, be they figures or flowers, this second installment ofAssembly once again draws together a range of subjects in diverse media. This selection of paintings, works on paper, and cutouts attests to Katz’s concern with the interrelationships among individuals, including model and painter. It also demonstrates his understanding of the landscape, both built and natural, as a community of entities mixing with light.
