P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents The Painted World, an exhibition featuring work by twenty-three painters for whom abstraction offers a means to convey a world of their own making. The intergenerational roster of artists makes significant connections clear between abstract painters working from the 1950s to today.
The painters in this exhibition may appear less concerned with how the world looks than with how the world feels. They offer a sensual feeling for space, referring to organic and natural forms, architecture, movement and perception. The artists also make us aware of the space in the room around us, and of our own presence.
