Where to buy it


Informed by early twentieth-century avantgardes, principally cubism and expressionism, Dana Schutz’s art is an extraordinary and joyful mash-up where a multitude of references and allusions collide. The exhilarating results can be understood as a productive conversation with the history of painting and as a compelling testament to painting’s complex and unending death throes. With its conflations of Géricault, horror films, Ensor, Picasso, Guston, porn, and pop culture, her work appears to counter and confront the imperious Internet information colossus, where everything is available at once. This fully bilingual publication accompanies an original exhibition of new and recent work and documents Schutz’s first exhibition in Canada.
