Anita Shapolsky Gallery is pleased to announce "Inspiration & Exploration", a group show featuring paintings, paper works, and sculpture from some of the greatest abstract artists of the 20th century.

"Inspiration & Exploration" showcases how these artists chose to define themselves and their world in a century marked by two world wars, rapid technological and economic change across the globe, radical social movements, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

Releasing themselves from many of the traditional boundaries of technique, composition, and subject matter, abstract artists were free to investigate non-traditional media, concepts, and visual languages. This exhibition investigates these artists’ sources of inspiration and the various ways they explored their personal style and medium.
