Bruce Guenther on DISQUIETED

The guest is Bruce Guenther, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Portland Art Museum. Bruce Guenther curated the current exhibition, DISQUIETED, which shows through May 16th. Artists have always reflected and reacted to the world around them—and contemporary art, through its form or content, often disturbs as much as it provides solace. In DISQUIETED, a roster of renowned contemporary artists explore our social condition and respond to the most compelling issues of the day, challenging our preconceptions and exposing our vulnerability in turbulent times. Kathleen Stephenson guest hosts.

Tue, 08/03/2010

In August Sherrie Wolf will show “Faces” at the Laura Russo Gallery. All the paintings of faces are from art history. Each piece is no bigger than a foot square. Some will be hung in a long line-up, some will be put into a grid. If you’re down with your art history, you’re going to see some familiar faces – Wolf has lifted from Rembrandt, Ingres, Vigee Le Brun, Vermeer, Goya, Caravaggio and many others. She seems to have adapted the approach of each individual painter, not just the details of a face.
