Spanning from the mid-1940s to the late 1990s, Color Vibrations presents an overview of abstract painting and printmaking that takes into account the artist’s various perspectives—personal, political, and philosophical.
Artist Arshile Gorky described abstraction as a way for individuals to see with their mind rather than their eyes. The process of translating the world into geometric shapes and gestural markings is different for every artist. Spanning from the mid-1940s to the late 1990s, Color Vibrations presents an overview of abstract painting that takes into account the artist’s various perspectives—personal, political, and philosophical.
Mirroring the way we flow through different emotional states, the installation reflects a range of human experiences. From the chaos of Karel Appel’s stormy lithograph, Dans le Tempete, to the serene structure of Agnes Martin’s Untitled grids, each work of art represents a transformative moment conveyed through the artist’s distinctive visual language.
This exhibition is the product of a collaboration between nearly 20 distinct perspectives and imaginations. Curated over a six-month period, teens from the Phoenix Art Museum’s Teen Art Council (TAC) worked with Marissa Del Toro, Diversifying Art Museum Leadership Initiative (DAMLI) Curatorial Fellow for the Contemporary Art Department, and Linda Alvarez, Teen Program Coordinator, with curatorial assistance by Melovee Easley, DAMLI Curatorial Fall 2019 Intern.
Exhibition Date: February 29, 2020 – January 31, 2021.
