Edges painted black

New Zealand artists New York/Auckland-based Max Gimblett (above) and Judy Millar of Auckland, (below) feature in a group show exploring “different aesthetic angles using black”, in an exhibition entitled, ‘Edges of Darkness’ at Berlin’s Hamish Morrison Galerie. The gallery site explains: “Rather than a severe, minimalist or monochromatic standpoint this is a colourful exhibition of black.” ‘Edges of Darkness’ runs 5 September through 25 October. Gimblett’s work will also be shown at New York’s Guggenheim Museum in a show entitled, ‘The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989’, in January 2009.
