“Black in the Abstract, Part 2: Hard Edges/Soft Curves”


Artwork | Black in the Abstract @ The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

“Black in the Abstract, Part 2” is a companion to Black in the Abstract, Part 1: Epistrophy, which explored the fragmentation of the figurative as well as the loose and expansive nature of abstraction, this section chronicles the history of black artists whose work relies on the drama of restraint.

Drawing upon the historical framework of minimalist impulses in painting, part 2 investigates the interwoven histories of black artists working within the monochromatic and geometric or “hard edge” impulses from the 1960s to the present.

Don’t miss the gallery walk-through with Senior Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver at 6:30PM.

“Black in the Abstract, Part 2: Hard Edges/Soft Curves” opens tomorrow, Saturday 25 with an opening reception from 6:30-8:30PM.
