Join us for an artful Saturday with a private tour of the exuberant David Salle exhibition at the Brant Foundation.  A docent will take us through the galleries, offering insight into the artist, the Center, and the process of putting together this exciting new show. 

David Salle's large-scale works arrange art historical and pop cultural references into enigmatic compositions. Salle has variously invoked 19th-century paintings, 1950s advertisements, graffiti, cartoons, and his own photographs and his sophisticated pastiches offer deadpan commentaries on contemporary life. He rose to prominence in the 1980s alongside a generation of painters, including Julian Schnabel and Eric Fischl, who were working in a new expressionist mode; yet he’s also associated with Pictures Generation artists such as Cindy ShermanBarbara Kruger, and Richard Prince, who rethink mass-media imagery and advertisements throughout their practices. Salle has exhibited around the world, and his canvases belong in the collections of the Albertina Museum, the Museo Reina Sofía, the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Tate, and the Stedelijk Museum, among many others.

Learn more about David Salle's work in this recent interview or visit his studio website.

For those of you wo have not yet been to the Brant Center, it's an architecturally spectacular space in a former polo field house, not open to the public. For more information on the Brant Foundation, click here.
