"The objective with this exhibition is not to revisit familiar terrain or construct another period piece, but to take adifferent approach. During the formative discussion stage of '1953', Rober t McKaskell wrote (to me) that there was an opportunity to 'slice through amoment in all of its density and diversity.' Rather than debunk or deconst ruct the Painters Eleven mythology -- even if the facts tell us otherwise (mythologies do serve a function), or claim that 1953 is a landmark year above all others -- '1953' examines regional modernism against a background ofdevelopments and innovations in science, technology and the culture of the time." - from Holubizky's introductory essay. With paintings, sculptures, and other pieces by: Alexandra Luke, B.C. Binning, William Winter, Walter Phillips, Tom Hodgson, Harold Town, William Ronald, Dorothy Stevens, A.Y. Jackson, J.W.G.
