In the Abstract
June 12, 2020– July 11, 2020

Abstraction still presents the possibility of enchantment. It is the limb of 20th century modern art, stretched out into the present day. Not trying to represent visual reality but instead using the colors, shapes, and processes that create its effect, abstraction invokes questions of space, order, simplicity and the limits of art itself. Site:Brooklyn is looking for work across all media.
