SUM Artists

Exhibition Website

Feb 15 2019 - Jun 14 2020

SUM Artists explores the work of several generations of artists who investigate and visualize artists, art-historical moments, and related aesthetic research primarily through charts, maps, and diagrams. The exhibition will feature new and historical paintings, drawings, and prints by artists including David Diao, Mary Beth Edelson, Alfred Jensen, George Maciunas, Loren Munk, Ward Shelley, and John Zinsser, among others.

Works included in SUM Artists examine and subjectively reimagine various subjects, such as Alfred Barr’s landmark chart Cubism and Abstract Art, which illustrates the development of Modern art (Ward Shelley); the Abstract Expressionist painter Barnett Newman’s unfinished paintings (David Diao); the growth of Fluxus and the expanded performing-arts movement between 1959 and 1966 (George Maciunas); artists and galleries in the postwar Los Angeles and San Francisco art scenes (Loren Munk); the emergence of the Feminist art movement in the early 1970s (Mary Beth Edelson); seminal New York City galleries and their affiliated artists from the 1960s to the 2000s (John Zinsser); and color systems as they relate to energy flow (Alfred Jensen).
