We are in love with the Nicholas Krushenick at the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, and on Friday, July 3rd you can join the Tang's Assistant Director for Engagement Michael Janairo for a tour of current exhibitions from 5:30 to 6:30pm.
Born in the Bronx, Krushenick was a prominent figure on the New York art scene throughout the 1960s and early 1970s. Using the surrounding influences of this vibrant scene as a catalyst, he developed a distinct style that straddled the lines between Op, Pop, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Color Field painting, creating dynamic, playful paintings. Juxtaposing broad black lines with bold, flat Liquitex colors.
Although he largely withdrew from the New York gallery exhibition scene by the late-1970s, Krushenick continued to paint, print, and draw prolifically until his death in 1999, creating a rich yet underappreciated body of work that has influenced a generation of younger painters. The first museum survey of Krushenick’s work in several decades, this exhibition features work from the 1960s to the 1990s.
The exhibition includes loans from the Museum of Modern Art, Dallas Museum of Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Walker Art Center, Johnson Museum at Cornell University, and several private collections along with key works from the artist’s estate. Many of the works have not been seen publicly in decades and have never before been brought together in the same exhibition.
