Art Exhibition: The Artist Curated Exhibition (from Guild Hall’s permanent collection)

Artist Bryan Hunt curates the first of a new series where invited collection artists select artworks from Guild Hall’s permanent collection and work with the Museum’s curatorial staff to organize innovative exhibitions. The series aspires to mount challenging material that will encourage critical thinking about the interpretation and installation of works. This exhibition of paintings and works on paper demonstrates the path an artist takes from representation to abstraction. Using figure and landscape as bookends, this selection follows the formal trajectory from these foundations “towards abstraction.” While some artists approach this undertaking reductively, distilling the subject to its essence, others choose a more expressionistic path, or even a conceptual one. Some straddle multiple methodologies, defying categorization altogether. Traversing genres and generations, Hunt’s choices offers the viewer an opportunity to examine and interpret the process abstraction.
