Assembly Recommends: Robert Ryman at Dia:Chelsea
Posted: Feb 14 2016
On view now though June 18 at Dia:Chelsea is a collection of six decades of Robert Ryman’s paintings. Each of the paintings is white, but Ryman expands upon the alleged limitations of the color by experimenting with the tonal values, luminescence, and spatial effects of white. The show is comprised of works on canvas, board, paper, aluminum, fiberglass, and Plexiglass. We love Ryman for many reasons, but he's especially interesting because his work is attributed to several important but disparate movements in contemporary art history: abstract expressionism, minimalism, and post minimalism. This is a rarity.
