EMMA - ESPOO MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, ESPOO (FI)   10 February 2016 - 17 April 2016

Ad Reinhardt / Art vs. History

For its 10th anniversary, the EMMA hosts an ambitious retrospective on one of the little-known facets of New York artist Ad Reinhardt

Curator : Païvi Talasmaa

Although the American artist is best known for his abstract ‘black’ paintings, this exhibition focuses on over three hundred political cartoons, as well as satirical illustrations and collages taken from the New York State Archives. These works on paper are accompanied by a slide show of colour photographs, digitized by the artist, plus a number of his travelogues, sketches and leaflets.
