The Shaped Canvas, Revisited (Booklet)
This illustrated booklet accompanies the exhibition The Shaped Canvas, Revisited at Luxembourg & Dayan, New York, in 2014, a re-exploration of the seminal exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, curated by influential critic Lawrence Alloway with works by Paul Feeley, Sven Lukin, Richard Smith, Frank Stella, and Neil Williams. Alloway’s show defined a key feature of abstraction and revealed the participating artists’ desire to overthrow existing aesthetic hierarchies. Half a century later, Luxembourg & Dayan's exhibition demonstrates that the shaped canvas remains robust in art, encompassing an array of approaches and provoking questions about the continued relevance of painting. The booklet features an extensive interview with artist Frank Stella by art historian and critic Suzanne Hudson.
