Enigmas, curated by Alison Gingeras, brings together four artists – Martin Barré, David Ostrowski, Julian Schnabel, and Reena Spaulings – who each engage with uniquely identifiable gestures in their work. Barré’s powerfully minimal paintings from the 1960s, marked by dense stripes of black, provide the foundation for this exhibition. Barré’s influence is mirrored in the deliberate gestures present in Ostrowski’s expansive canvases. Ranging from the boldly colored monumental spray works of Julian Schnabel to Reena Spaulings’s repurposed tablecloths from which the exhibition takes its title, Enigmas captures one of the essential elements of forging an artistic identity.
The exhibition is on view through April 25th.
