Contemporary Expressionism

San Diego Museum of Art
Lyceum Gallery
San Diego, California
7 September – 13 October 2013

******Juror’s Choice Award*******

In conjunction with the play A Weekend with Pablo Picasso, The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild presents the juried exhibition Contemporary Expressionism: The Creative Spirit.

Often focusing on the internal world of emotion and spirituality, or on identity and protest, Expressionism has many faces. This exhibition seeks to explore the many different approaches to this fascinating form of art-making.

The term Expressionism was first applied to the Parisian painting that followed Post-Impressionism at the turn of the 19th century. Throughout the 20th century, Expressionism was applied to various figurative and abstract movements, from the German Expressionists, to Picasso and the Cubists, to Abstract Expressionism, Art Informel, Bay Area Figuration, and Neo-Expressionism.

Reception: Friday, 13 September 13
