dana schutz: works on paper


September 21, 2012–January 13, 2013

MCA Denver will present a series of Dana Schutz’s latest works on paper in conjunction with a large-scale retrospective of her work at the Denver Art Museum.  Drawing from a long tradition of Abstract Expressionism, Schutz creates an imaginative and mythic universe full of cannibals, creatures and other grotesque and fantastical characters. Her color monotypes showcase the sensory overload and luscious texture that characterizes her paintings, while her black-and-white drawings display a similar style that is both haunting and gestural and which blurs together figurative and abstract elements. The exhibition will feature new drawings, as well as watercolor monoprints produced specifically for this presentation.

Curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, Dana Schutz: Works on Paper will be presented in the Luisa & Chris Law Gallery from September 21, 2012, through January 13, 2013. The opening celebration will be held on Friday, September 21, 6–8PM members preview, 8–10PM public opening.

This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Denver Art Museum’s ten-year survey, Dana Schutz: If the Face Had Wheels (November 11, 2012–January 13, 2013) and the Hamilton Collaborative benefiting the University of Denver and the Denver Art Museum.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by MCA Denver’s Director’s Vision Society members and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. MCA Denver also thanks the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
