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.
