MARFA, Texas. – Eugene Binder will host a Winter Solstice reception in conjunction with the opening of a re-installation of the Black & White exhibition on Thursday, December 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. to which the public is cordially invited. This installation will provide an opportunity to have another viewing of the wide variety of works by 17 artists based throughout the United States, including Marfa, working in many different mediums.
The theme of the exhibition, Black and White, identifies a recent trend in contemporary art to create work with the utmost clarity, a direct presentation of concept as perhaps an antithesis to the computer-assisted embellishment of lush color, ubiquitous in almost all mass media, as well as many contemporary works of art.
The artists whose work is include are the following: Valerie Arber,
Ruben Nieto, Tom Orr, Arthur Peña, John Pomara, Richard Prince, Pat Rogers, Laszlo Thorsen-Nagel, Liz Trosper,
A number of David Kimble’s “cutaway” drawings and Robert Terry’s “Lincoln” paintings will also be on view, as well as a selection of rare, out of print art books and exhibition catalogues documenting the exhibitions and work of Donald Judd, Bruce Nauman, Balthus, Gerhard Richter, and others. A limited quantity of David Kimble’s recently published book, Cutaways, Techniques & Stories Behind the Art will also be available.
The exhibition will be open daily December 26 through December 31 from 11 am to 5pm and by appointment.
Eugene Binder exhibition space is located at 218 N. Highland Avenue Marfa, Texas.
