DESCRIPTION


NURTUREart invites you to a special Muse Fuse event, a conversation with Vince Contarino, David Geers and Lauren Portada, three among the many contributors to the hot-off-the-presses, NURTUREart-produced book Golden Age: perspectives on abstract painting today. A first batch of book copies will be available at the gallery.

Wednesday, October 8, 7pm at NURTUREart Gallery.

Admission is free. Feel free to bring something to drink and/or eat to share, we’ll have ice and beers/water and welcome any announcements of exhibitions and opportunities from the local community.

Edited by Marco Antonini and Christopher K. Ho and featuring contributions by (in order of appearance) Marco Antonini, Ariel Dill, Lauren Portada, Stephen Truax, David Geers, Jonathan Allmaier, Vince Contarino, Lane Relyea, Nathlie Provosty, Keith J. Varadi, Christopher K. Ho, Gregory Sholette, David Xu Borgonjon, Keenan Jay and Lauren Martin, Golden Age features three groundbreaking essays about abstract painting plus newly published postscripts by the authors. Critical texts are interspersed with the voices of the painters themselves, captured by the editors in lively conversations and correspondences.

Golden Age is as much an attempt to summarize existing conversations about the eternal returns of abstract painting as it is an incitement to discuss contemporary art practices (above and beyond specific styles, trends or topics) and how we can further their impact, agency and relevance.

This book was printed thanks to a partial grant from the Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.
