What does a bather look like in the age of camera phones, air conditioning, and rapid transcontinental flight? What if Picasso had had an Instagram feed? BATHERS, comprised of 13 young, contemporary painters and sculptors, dives into this revered and time honored modernist motif.

The artists invited for this exhibition are unafraid of the spectra of Modernism, and deal fluidly with many of its traditional subjects and styles. And similarly to the Modernists, many of them are friends and lovers, visiting each other’s studios on a regular basis, exhibiting together, and engaging in a continued dialogue about each other’s work, as well as the work of artists that came before them.  - thru Aug 23
