Expanding Space: Ronald Bladen, Al Held, Yvonne Rainer, and George Sugarman, November 2nd through December 21st, 2017 at Loretta Howard Gallery. This exhibition examines four closely-knit friends and artists who shared a complex personal, intellectual, and artistic history. Convening in New York in the late 1950s, their passionate debates and give-and-take of ideas lent intensity and rigor to their creative endeavors. Carving out new artistic ground, they adopted a mode of minimal art making that was reductive, powerful, and playful.
