"Unpainted Paintings" at Luxembourg & Dayan

Good afternoon contemporary art lovers!
Such as many galleries in the Upper East Side, Luxembourg & Dayan gallery isn't seen from the outside. For those who don't know that this is a gallery, they can walk by in the street and missing one of the most beautiful exhibition I've seen recently. Exhibition takes place in a cute little four-stories townhouse.

Curated by Alison Gingeras (chief curator at Palazzio Grassi), this exhibition is very unique and shows us some paintings that were never been seen before. Show features artists from 1950's to these days: Jean Dubuffet, Raymond Hains, Piero Manzoni, Robert Rauschenberg, Julian Schnabel, Lynda Benglis, Sheila Hicks... to name but a few! One can say that this exhibition has been held in a very sincere way, with no pretension at all and it's hard to believe that there are many masterpieces hidden behind that little house!!

Exhibition is on view at 64 east 77th st, Manhattan and runs until May 27th. An illustrated catalogue will be published in summer 2011.
