Waterhouse and Dodd’s 25th Anniversay: Post-War and Contemporary Art in America
Waterhouse & Dodd New York presented the gallery’s 25th Anniversary Exhibition at their new Madison Avenue space, dedicated to artists from the Post-War and Contemporary art eras curated by Heidi Lee.
For their inaugural exhibition, the gallery will highlight important paintings, sculpture and works on paper by world-renowned artists including Alexander Calder, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Allan D’Arcangelo, Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann.
Allan D’Archangelo’s work Four Squares (1964) appropriates roadside imagery, from the classic American open highway to deconstructed street signs, while Robert Indiana’s use of text and symbols further alludes to iconography of the American landscape. Jim Dine’s painting North West Hot Springs (2005) incorporates Warhol’s methodology of image repetition in relation to an object of personal or applied significance: in Dine’s case, the bathrobe. Tom Wesselmann, renowned for his signature Pop aesthetic, is represented by the steel-cut relief Monica: Nude With a Purple Robe (1990), a later example of the artist’s acclaimed series of nudes.
With these works, alongside Calder’s graphic, modern painting and Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s collage of their legendary Central Park project The Gates, Waterhouse & Dodd’s 25th Anniversary exhibition celebrates the legacies of these creative visionaries, as well as the gallery’s own history and new beginning on Madison Avenue.
