Outrageous Fortune: Jay DeFeo and Surrealism
Mar 01-Apr 07
Focusing on elements of chance, play and the marvelous in Jay DeFeo's work, the exhibition brings together paintings, photographs, collages and works on paper to reveal how DeFeo's art often aligns with Surrealist attitudes. DeFeo was especially fascinated by the anthropomorphic potential of mechanical objects, presenting a photographed vacuum cleaner or tripod as an almost alive creature. Opening reception: Thu, Mar 1, 6-8pm.
