Romare Bearden: Abstraction

Wed - Sun, through Sep 18, 11 am - 5 pm
Frye Art Museum First Hill (Seattle)
This is an in-person event
With over 55 paintings, collages, and other works on paper, this exhibition surveys Romare Bearden's mid-century abstractions with unmatched precision. The New York avant-garde artist was also a writer, social worker, and activist, acting as the first art director for the Harlem Cultural Council and helping found the Studio Museum in Harlem. Landing in New York in childhood as an escape from the Jim Crow South, Bearden studied art and built a flourishing career by 1945, then transitioned to non-representational subjects in the '50s. A pioneer of the "stain painting" method, Bearden reimagined what artmaking could be, developing surprising techniques in casein and collage.
