Dana Schutz

au

The MAC presents an original exhibition that offers an overview of the work of New York artist Dana Schutz, with particular emphasis on highlights of her recent output. Schutz’s work over the past decade has had a marked influence on contemporary painting. Her paintings are inhabited by strange portraits or group scenes, in which the figures are often stripped naked, carved into silhouettes of raw flesh. In addition to certain traits borrowed from the tradition of Synthetic Cubism, they recall the primitive impulse of German Expressionism.

Exhibition organized with the support of Petzel Gallery, New York, and the generous contribution of Carlo Bronzini Vender and Tanya Traykovski.

Noteworthy

This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at a Canadian institution.
