The Drawing Center’s Sari Dienes exhibit, which opened last night and is on view through November 16, is the first museum show ever devoted to the artist.
In the early 1950s, Sari Dienes used experimental processes to create bold works on paper, impressing into her pictorial support the gritty and vibrant terrain of New York City’s streets. Her transfer drawings of subway grates, sidewalks, and manhole covers produced images that were at once abstract patterns and highly recognizable subjects. These drawings had a profound formal, technical, and iconographic impact on a young generation of artists, including Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. While widely exhibited and well–received at the time of its creation, her work has been largely overlooked in recent decades. This exhibition highlights her practice and sheds new light on her legacy. Curated by Alexis Lowry Murray and Delia Solomons.
Jesse Reno lives and works in his home studio in Portland, Oregon. He is a self taught artist and is internationally recognized for his brilliant works.
