Group Exhibition: Wet Wet Wet

February 14 - March 23

Aida Tomescu, ‘The Tongue Set Free’, 2019. Oil on Belgian linen, 183 x 306cm. Courtesy: the artist and Fox Jensen McCrory, Auckland.

 

The overdue recalibration of Abstract Expressionism’s (his)tory. To attend to the legacy of major painters such as Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell is the focus of Mary Gabriel’s timely book Ninth Street Women, where she describes the social and political context that allowed for and encouraged their marginalisation.

Wet Wet Wet’’s painters, Erin Lawlor (UK), Aida Tomescu (AUS) and Liat Yossifer (USA), feel indispensable to this ongoing reconstitution of abstract painting in the hands of powerful women artists. Artists through whose work we can clearly perceive a future for painting.

 

Exhibition opens: 5.30pm Thursday 14 February 2019
