What We See, How We See
What We See, How We See is a series of seven focused exhibitions that explores how artists see and interpret the world through their distinct image-making and narrative approaches. Multi-generational and multi-faceted, the exhibition presents nearly 125 works from the late 19th Century until today. Individual galleries based on specific themes feature paintings, works on paper, photographs, and sculpture, opening with artists Richard Prince, Dorothea Rockburne, and David Salle, among others. Circles, Squares, and Squiggles explores abstract gestures through works by Jennifer Bartlett, Willem de Kooning, and Perle Fine; Portraits by Chuck Close, Till Freiwald and others reveal their subjects in larger than life paintings; and American Landscapes highlights work from the Parrish’s renowned holdings. Two galleries bring to light bodies of work by single artists, from the tragic-comic world view of Saul Steinberg (a major gift from The Saul Steinberg Foundation that comprises works on paper, wallpaper and fabric), to the joyful imagery of Tom Slaughter.
