David Diao: Front to Back
July 13 to September 21, 2014

This exhibition brings together a selection of paintings that span the years 1972 to 2012, presenting a timeline of Diao's sustained dialogue with Modernism, as well as his relationship to the art world and the critical establishment. The early works speak to Diao's struggle with the history of gestural abstraction in a period when many artists were questioning the validity of painting. The more recent works in the exhibition reflect the artist's soul searching on both his career and role in the unfolding history of painting.
Opening Reception Schedule
