Robert Miller is pleased to present Untitled (Hybrid)< /i>\, an exhibition focusing on the work of Lee Krasner with works by Polly Apfelbaum\, Alisa Baremboym\, Sarah Cain\, Leidy Churchman\, Joanne Greenbaum\, Julia Hechtman and Dona Nelson. Curated by Kate McNamara\, Dir ector of Boston University Art Gallery and co-founder of project space Cleo patra’s in Greenpoint\, the exhibition presents a new generation of work in conversation with Krasner’s legacy.

\n

The work of Lee Krasner is relevant as ever today\, particularly among an intergenerational group of artists working across disciplines\, utilizing and redefining a language of abstraction. Krasner’s critical body of work in painting\, collage\, and p rint has defined a radical and sophisticated approach to abstraction. Colle ctively\, Krasner’s paintings demonstrate a beautiful and sometimes erratic choreography. Made up of gestural marks\, lush color\, and densely constru cted compositions\, Krasner opened up an integral conversation about the po ssibility and expansion of painting that continues to work its way into art ists’ practices today. The title of the exhibition\, excerpted from Krasner ’s 1962 painting of the same name\, suggests a new generation of work\, equ ally provocative and occasionally stubborn\; boundary-pushing and incredibl y generous\; and very much in conversation with Krasner’s legacy. Her work has not only provided a springboard for many artists working today\, but Kr asner continues to be a critical contribution toward contemporary art pract ices engaged in the art world.

\n

The eight artists of Untitled (Hy brid) investigate\, challenge\, appropriate\, and extend critica l aspects of materiality\, process\, abstraction\, and pictorial ideas. Whi le they differ in approaches\, each work draws attention to technique and p ushes the conventions of medium through an active investigation of abstract ion. A continuous visual dialogue demonstrated in multiple mediums is frame d by\, and very much in dialogue with\, Krasner’s timeless works. Untitl ed (Hybrid) creates a charged space where these relevant discour ses can be considered\, without being imposed\, and petitions the viewer to deliberate on her own assumptions about painting\, as well as their relati onship to Krasner’s body of work. The exhibition suggests certain associati ons and similarities in defining the works and artists of the exhibition\, as well as captures a current working definition for the word “abstraction\ ,” which Krasner defined so instinctively and intuitively through her many bodies of work throughout her life.

\n

The artists of Untitled (Hyb rid) push the boundaries of medium\, confront notions of style\, and expand upon conceptual and aesthetic approaches to art making through a constant investigation into the possibilities of abstraction. Untitled (Hybrid) is in your face\, and not always elegant\; beautiful and fear less\; demonstrating extreme skill. As works they are radical and challengi ng\; they invite you in and force you out. The works that make up Untitl ed (Hybrid)\, in keeping with the challenging example Krasner se t in place\, engage diverse and powerful characteristics that include grit\ , emotion\, parody\, antagonism\, and corporality.
