ABSTRACT FIGURATION

Earlier this year, former Interview editor and Vanity Fair special correspondent Bob Colacello made his curatorial debut with THE AGE OF AMBIGUITY: ABSTRACT FIGURATION/FIGURATIVE ABSTRACTION at the Vito Schnabel Gallery in St. Moritz.

The catalogue—published by Schnabel, with text by Colacello—is an 82-page hardcover featuring work by Jean-Michel Basquiat, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Jeff Elrod, Jacqueline Humphries, Rashid Johnson, Adam McEwen, Sterling Ruby, Borna Sammak, Jonas Wood, Vito’s father Julian Schnabel, and Bob’s former employer Andy Warhol.

“As the 21st century grapples its way through its second decade, America seems to have entered what may be called The Age of Ambiguity, a time when everything is fluid and nothing concrete, and confusion overwhelms certainty… It is said that the best artists are the antennae of their society, the prophets of their era. Is it any wonder, then, that many younger American painters and sculptors have long abandoned the bygone absolutisms of Minimalism on one hand and Hyper-Realism on the other and are making works today that hover in a hard to define space that might be called Abstract Figuration or Figurative Abstraction?” — Bob Colacello*
