Walls of Color: The Murals of Hans Hofmann 

When: March 22-April 22 2016
The Abstract Expressionist Hans Hofmann took a commission for a mural project in Chimbote, Peru, in 1950. Though never realized, the seven-foot-tall oil studies for it in this exhibit offer a look under the hood of abstraction. The studies demonstrate Hofmann’s “push/pull theory” of abstraction, by which adjacent colors and forms create synthetic depth and implied movement, a template that one can use on almost any twentieth-century abstract work. —Chris Vitiello
