During the first two-thirds of the twentieth century, critics who followed avant-garde trends often measured the success of figurative works in relation to abstraction.  Facing Abstraction: Refiguring the Body in the Twentieth Century, drawn from the Neuberger Museum of Art’s permanent collection, combines selected artists’ writings with objects to offer a fresh perspective on the relationship between abstraction and figuration.

Curated by Tracy Fitzpatrick, Ph.D., Adjunct Curator, Neuberger Museum of Art and Assistant Professor, Art History, Purchase College, State University of New York, with assistance from Adrienne Battaglino, Curatorial Intern, Neuberger Museum of Art.

Support for the presentation of Facing Abstraction is provided by the Westchester Arts Council, with funds from Westchester County government, and the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art.
