opening: February 5h, 2010 | 7-10pm
duration: February 5th, 2011 - April 17th, 2011
Cal State University’s cutting-edge museum arm, Grand Central Art Center, and Nathan Spoor present a comprehensive survey exhibition that explores and documents a select section of modern contemporary artists which make up the vibrant core of creativity existing in the current art world.
Conceptually speaking, the term “suggestivism” refers to the ability of an individual to pursue their purpose with an amplified understanding and sensitivity. The artists involved represent precisely this – a wave of purpose, working within the more fluid aspects of narrative or figurative arenas. Through the mere power of suggestion, the magic is transferred from one to another, engaging the world at large from the most vivid and evocative of visual realms.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a grand print piece that includes the artwork in the exhibition, as well as a fascinating time capsule of studio shots and compelling interviews conducted by Spoor with each artist during the three-year curating period (2008 – 2011).
