Ed Moses: Cross-Section (Opening Reception)

The University Art Galleries (UAG) will mount a solo exhibition of paintings by Ed Moses, utilizing all three galleries and featuring works from the 1970s to the present. Cross-Section will trace the common thematic thread binding Moses's prolific and continuous act of exploration. In so doing, the philosophical continuity of the artist's disparate visual strategies will be framed, strategies the artist has repeated and contradicted, as his investigation into the painted form has changed direction or reversed course over the past five decades. The curatorial perspective, in turn, will provide a rhizomatic framework to Moses's oeuvre – a genealogy of these strategies – in place of the conventional, chronological account typically used by institutions to situate an artist's work within historical movements alone. An accompanying exhibition catalogue, featuring dynamic color plates of the work and scholarly essays by the curators as well as the legendary art historian
