Leon Golub and Nancy Spero: War and Memory
Leon Golub and Nancy Spero are senior American painters whose works have consistently wrestled with questions of power and the individual. Golub’s monumental canvases, with their looming figures and lacerated surfaces thrust themselves belligerently into the spectator’s face. Spero’s more delicate works on paper, episodic and ephemeral, infiltrate the spectator’s awareness more surreptitiously. War and Memory, a joint retrospective, is the first major exhibition to survey their strangely interdependent symmetry. Essay by Katy Kline and Helaine Posner.
