13 Oct-13 Jan. This exhibition highlights the social and political commitment of American visual artist Alice Neel (1900-1984), focusing in particular on her output from 1933 to 1965.
Neel's work from this era features dismal street scenes, exhausted workers, people rummaging for food in rubbish bins, and political demonstrations.
Most importantly, however, Neel documents the rise of fascism in Europe during the late 1930s.
The artist considered her art work, which is devoid of sentimentality or glorification, as a form of historiography.
