SANTA FE, NM.- The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum
announced an upcoming exhibition featuring approximately 20 paintings by Susan Rothenberg entitled Susan Rothenberg: Moving in Place, Jan. 22 May 16, 2010.
Part of the museums Living Artists of Distinction Series, the exhibition at the Georgia OKeeffe Museum follows a well-received showing at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (Texas), where it was organized by that museums chief curator, Michael Auping.
Moving in Place is Rothenbergs first solo museum show in more than a decade. The artist and Auping, who have known each other for over three decades, have selected works that span Rothenbergs career from her early horse paintings of the mid-1970s to those from her most recent body of work. Each painting highlights key compositional strategies in a formal narrative in which perceived movement, fragmentation and painterly gesture establish a dynamic interaction with the edges and frames of the canvases.
The Georgia OKeeffe Museum has collaborated with the Fort Worth Museum to include this exhibition in its Living Artists of Distinction series, a program that honors living artists whose works have made distinctive contributions to the history of American modern art.
After being on view at the Georgia OKeeffe Museum, the exhibition will travel to the Miami Art Museum.
