New York Cool: Painting and Sculpture from the NYU Art Collection
New York Cool: Painting and Sculpture from the NYU Art Collection. "...New York Cool proposes a fresh vision of an eclectic time. Drawn from the New York University Art Collection - founded in 1958 and particularly rich in New York School works - the exhibition demonstrates how many downtown artists, living in the stimulating environments of Greenwich Village and, later, SoHo, fostered a new kind of personal sensibility in tandem with a seemingly impersonal geometric style. Allusive instead of expressive, understated rather than declarative, the painting and sculpture of this time set the stage for everything that followed."
