> DESCRIPTION

Please join The Painting Center Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 7 PM for “Who is Tibor Freund?”, a talk by art critic, poet and essayist John Yau. A retrospective monograph of Tibor Freund’s work, authored by John Yau, will be published by Hard Press Editions in 2008. This event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition Light, Time and Motion: Paintings by Tibor Freund is part of the re-discovery and the re-evaluation of this mid-twentieth century artist. Freund’s interest in kinetics, luminosity, space, temporality, and surface place him in a high profile, international, artistic community. One thinks of the iron sculptures of Jean Tinguely; the grids of Victor Vasarely; the Op works of Bridget Riley. Perhaps what sets Freund apart from his better-known colleagues is that his paintings emphasize nature, body, even objecthood; they convey a ringing physicality. Accompanying the exhibition will be an essay by Lynn Crawford, editor, art critic and poet.
