Michael Rosenfeld Gallery to Represent William T. Williams

Released: November 22, 2016

“One of the things I remember most is ... people asking me … ‘Why are you making abstraction? It’s not African American art.’ And I would always say, “Well … you tell me what it should look like. Jazz is the most abstract of all music. Music is totally abstract. How can you not say there’s a tradition of abstraction?’ I would talk about quilts, point out that the geometry of quilts is certainly coming out of abstraction. There is this rich tradition; all you have to do is see it and to use it.”                     —William T. Williams (New York—November 22, 2016) Michael Rosenfeld Gall...

Michael Rosenfeld Gallery to Represent Barbara Chase-Riboud

Released: October 15, 2014

“I love silk, and it's one of the strongest materials in the world and lasts as long as the bronze. So it's not a weak material vs. a strong material so the transformation that happens in the steles is not between two unequal things but two equal things that interact and transform each other.” —Barbara Chase-Riboud (New York—September 30, 2014) Michael Rosenfeld Gallery proudly announces our representation of Barbara Chase-Riboud, the American-born, European-based author, poet, and artist whose work in all genres engages with the processes of transformation.

Opening reception with the artist: Friday, May 9, 5:00-7:00PM “[In 1960] I underwent an internal revolution. I no longer felt that I had to please. . .but knew that I could express myself. I did that through human figures. They were falling from the sky as if falling from grace. . .or were suspended in fetal positions. I also fell—out of my harness of familial expectations. . .I fell out of the bondage of being the oldest child with so much responsibility. . .In between the womb and tomb was fierce strife and anxiety. Any figure not in the fetal position or buried was striving.” &n...

Beyond the Spectrum: Abstraction in African American Art, 1950-1975

Released: January 08, 2014

“I think all art is abstract . . . the earliest art of human beings was figurative and abstract. Period. So there was never a time that human beings didn’t deal with both modes. To conceive of something from the world you experience, and then create or recreate based on it, is an abstract process anyway.”­                                                                             - Melvin Edwards “R...
