Historical Works from the Bass Museum of Art Together with Contemporary Works Form Exhibition

MIAMI BEACH, FL.- This exhibition brings historical works from the Bass Museum of Art together with contemporary works borrowed from renowned local and national collections to create a dialogue between the past and present. Included in the exhibition are works by 17th, 18th, and 19th century masters such as Delacroix, Rubens, Goya, Rigaud and Hoppner, engaged with contemporary artists that include, among others, Pieter Hugo, Joseph Beuys, Martin Puryear, Wim Delvoye, Charles Ledray, Byron Kim, Jonathan Monk and Eve Sussman.

As an example, the expression of power in the historical portrait continues in the contemporary work of Pieter Hugo whose images echo the composition of earlier masters Hyacinthe Rigaud and John Hoppner. Rigaud’s fabulous portrait of the Earl of Portland and Hoppner’s portrayal of the lithe Concannon are highly formulaic, but so is Hugo’s portrait of Abdullahi Mohammed, posing with his hyena. All three are men of power, depicted fearless, confident, baroque in their swagger. Hugo's other portraits nuance this understanding of the portrait, where uniform (justice, scout) indicates status and identity in no less potent a way than the powerful men of state and church in the High Renaissance and Baroque

The Endless Renaissance is an exhibition that, on one hand, looks at how contemporary artists continue to quote and invoke the work of earlier artwork, and on the other hand, shows how the way that we experience the art of the past is anything but stable or predictable. Every time we look at a work of art, it becomes contemporary.

His most recent book, Festschrift, was published by Leo Press in 2008. Mr. Holmes holds a MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and a MTS from Harvard.
