Benrimon Contemporary, 514 W24th St., NYC (2nd FL)


Group exhibition featuring paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculpture by a selection of international artists.

Historical landscape paintings call to mind bucolic yet contrived scenes where every tree, rock and cloud appear carefully placed to capture a pastoral moment in time. This exhibition challenges the notion of classical landscape art, exposing the unseen and forgotten, forcing the viewer to reconsider what defines this pillar of art history through a contemporary lens.
