Dan Christensen: Forty Years of Painting
[ISBN: 978-1-891246-18-0]
$29.95
   

Fully illustrated 112 page catalogue Published 2009 ISBN: 978-1-891246-18-0

A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, Dan Christensen: Forty Years of Painting. The 112-page catalogue includes essays by New York-based critic/curator Karen Wilkin, former gallerist Douglas Drake, and Sharon L. Kennedy from the Sheldon Museum of Art, as well as a foreword by exhibition curator Rachael Blackburn Cozad, director and CEO of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

For more than forty years, American artist Dan Christensen—long associated with the Color Field movement—experimented with colors, shapes, and forms in his large-scale paintings. Featuring 35 of the artist’s works of art from 1966 to 2006, the exhibition Dan Christensen: Forty Years of Painting is the first comprehensive Museum retrospective of the artist’s work since his death in 2007. This survey of his paintings documents his quest to understand the possibilities of color, paint, and pictorial space. Often placed within the Color Field movement, Christensen’s experimentation with tools and techniques makes him resistant to any one label or category but does place him among this country’s most ambitious abstract and gestural painters.

The exhibition is on view at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, May 15–August 30, 2009, and the Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, October 23, 2009–January 31, 2010.
