Listed by the Observer as one of the "10 Things to Do in New York's Art World Before June 19th" is the opening of Roger Brown: Political Paintings at DC Moore Gallery. Paintings by Roger Brown (BFA 1968, MFA 1970) spanning the years 1983 to 1991 will be on view from June 18 to July 31. Brown’s paintings deliver biting commentary on the Gulf War, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and the savings and loan industry collapse and bailout through inventive use of luminous color, silhouetted figures, stylized natural forms, and dramatic shifts of scale and perspective. The exhibition catalogue includes an essay by Lisa Stone, Curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection at SAIC.
