#tbt About a year ago we installed 9 of these Monster flat files at the Dedalus Foundation. They're about 8 1/2' tall and we estimated they weighed about 1100 pounds each!

Today, let's celebrate great American artist Robert Motherwell, #bornonthisday in 1915. The youngest member of the 'New York School', Motherwell is recognized as a major figure in the birth and development of Abstract Expressionism, for which he became a passionate advocate and articulate spokesman. His career spanned five decades during which time he created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. He believed that ideas and emotions were best communicated through the bold forms and gestural lines of abstract art, whether in light blues and sandy ochres or in calligraphic blacks.

The beauty of abstract expressionism is in the interpretation: I see a vase and two blooms illuminated by the rays of the sun. What do you see? 👀 ~~~~~

Head of Visual Research and Photo Archives, The Dedalus Foundation, The Estate of Robert Motherwell @thededalusfndn 2002-2004 #throwbackthursday slow and painstaking research, analysis of over 15,000 images of Motherwell’s major works where I made numerous discoveries which overturned previous scholarship regarding some of Motherewell’s major works. My findings were not credited in the published Catalogue Raisonee. I’m sure I’m not the first or last whose research was not credited, although it doesn’t take away from the fascination I found in Motherwell’s work. In my work I also established a system of organizing and archiving Motherewell’s images based on the #deweydecimal system which I learned from my years at @columbia #lowlibrary #lowlibrarycolumbia #lowlibraryrarebooksroom #robertmotherwell #dedalusfoundation #arthistory #abstractexpressionism #americanpainters #research #visualanalysis #catalogueraisonné Forever thankful to @joachimpissarro for bringing me on board.

Please join students from #TheJamesBaldwinSchool for a gallery opening! On Thursday, December 7 from 4-7pm, students will share their original Islamic art and origami art pieces with the community at the @thededalusfndn. Students will be onsite to discuss the connections between math and art all night.

Inside look into a little exhibition I curated of Motherwell's studio practices! #dedalusfoundation #motherwell #artiststudio #abstractexpressionism #collage #funkybrush

“La Revolucion” by Stephanie E. was exhibited in Teens Curate Teens Spring 2017 exhibition, on the theme of Borders. “Revolutions are examples of resilience, especially when you are the oppressed…There is a morbid beauty in a traumatizing experience; from devastation, we are left with a blooming flower of success. My art is inspired by my mother – a Nicaraguan revolutionary at 18, she fought alongside her brothers to defeat the dictator Somoza Garcia.” Link in bio to help decide theme for Teens Curate Teens 2018.
