Dana Schutz: Eating Atom Bombs

Sat, 01/20/2018 to Sun, 04/15/2018

 

Dana Schutz: Eating Atom Bombs debuts a new series of paintings by Schutz, one of the most influential painters of her generation. Created mostly in the past year, the works reflect the turbulent political atmosphere experienced in the United States in the wake of the 2016 election. Though our society may seem more divided than ever, the exhibition suggests that this uncertainty may be what unites us. In the words of the artist, “Many of the paintings depict dystopic scenes of conflict and shame. Subjects conceal and reveal themselves, trying to hold themselves together as well as the picture.”

Dana Schutz (born 1976) received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art prior to earning her MFA from Columbia University. Her work has been exhibited internationally and collected by many institutions. Most recently, her work was the subject of a survey exhibition organized by the ICA Boston.
