Ciel Bergman: The Linens

The Center for Contemporary Arts is pleased to present The Linens, an exhibition of paintings by Ciel Bergman in the Tank Garage, Curated by Angie Rizzo, Independent Curator.

February 9 - April 29, 2018

The Linens are a series of 48 acrylic paintings on unstretched Belgian linen made between the years of 1970 - 77 by Ciel Bergman. The series ranges from a starkly minimal aesthetic that defines the Spiritual Guide Map portion, to bold, graphic colors and vague abstractions to representations that explore ideas of philosophy, sexuality, and physicality. This exhibition features a selection of the series - more than have ever been shown together at one time - and the foundations of a prolific and inspired artist.

Beverly Erdreich: Continuum

Beverly Erdreich: Continuum // Opens February 9 // Cinematheque Gallery 

Beverly Erdreich’s Continuum series takes an unflinching look at atrocities that have impacted society through incredible acts of brutality. Inspired by Francisco de Goya’s 19th century series Disasters of War, Erdreich draws direct parallels from modern acts of inhumanity to the nightmarish, abject plates of Goya’s etchings. Reproducing and enlarging a selection of Goya’s images, Erdreich then works into each in an additive and subtractive process of drawing, collage, erasure, and text. The images speak to us with an urgency to point out how little the world has changed in the centuries since Goya’s pioneering series of first-hand war reportage.
