> DESCRIPTION

Despite the periodic ringing of the death knell for painting, this genre of art-making is alive and well. The ambivalence toward the ‘artist’s hand’ inspired the title of this exhibition, which brings together a wide cross-section of painterly activity by artists who are defining the terms by which we understand this tradition today. Drawn primarily from the MCA Collection, the exhibition shows that a skepticism about how painterly gestures are made is a concern that dates back decades. Artists featured in the exhibition include Chicago artist Christopher Wool, Robert Rauschenberg, Richard Prince, and Sterling Ruby. Curated by James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling. Organized by the MCA Chicago.
