Gimblett at the Guggenheim

New York/Auckland artist Max Gimblett features in the latest issue of Art World, in an article by collaborator John Yau about the influence of Asia on the artist’s work. Gimblett, who has long had a preoccupation with Asian art and thinking, is part of a “groundbreaking exhibition” at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, in a show entitled, ‘The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860-1989’. The exhibition is curated by Alexandra Munroe, Curator of Asian Art at the Guggenheim. ‘The Third Mind’ traces how the material culture, artistic legacies, and philosophical systems of Asia – collectively admired as ‘the East’ – were known reconstructed, and transformed by American art and cultural forces. Gimblett’s painting ‘Lion’ 1985 / 90″ – quatrefoil / metallic pigments and acrylic polymer on canvas – features in the exhibition. Four limited edition prints by Gimblett; ‘Bushido’,’Guggenheim Enso’, ‘One Stroke Bone’ and ‘Water is Never Clumsy’ are available for purchase from the Guggenheim store. The exhibition runs until April 19.
