While viewers can be moved by good art that has color and beauty, this exhibition examines good art that minimizes those features. This exhibition might not be for everyone who walks through our doors.

 

Often, gallery patrons look to buy art to hang above a living room couch in order to liven up the room’s decor. Any gallery dealer will confirm that colorful paintings sell better than dark paintings. Museums are not trying to sell.
