A NEW AGE: ON THE SPIRITUAL IN ART

A New Age claims a coming of age of the spiritual in art and makes the case for expanding the canon of contemporary art history beyond the abstract, the technical and the rational. Exhibiting early 20th century artists Hilma af Klint and Emma Kunz, alongside young artist duos Friedrich Kunath & Adam Rabinowitz out of Los Angeles, Muntean/Rosenblum out of Vienna, and the one and only Marina Abramovic, the show opens August 1st, and focuses on new age manifestations of the occult, the mystical and the esoteric.

Muntean / Rosenblum,  Untitled (“They stood for …“),  2016  Acrylic and crayon on canvas, 285 x 545 cm  “They STOOD for A long moment looking vacantly out at the street of slanted shadows. There were times, such AS this, when it was as though they had lost themselves, had misplaced the self they were and become A thing without substance, A mote adrift in MOTIONLESS light.”
