A new aesthetic has been growing from the mid-eighties to today, an aesthetic that defies the closure of modernism and forces the audience to recognize both the artwork and the world around as incomplete. The Chelsea Art Museum's newest exhibition, set to open October 2, 2007, explores this aesthetic through the diverse works of four generations of contemporary artists. Aptly titled, The Incomplete, the exhibition mixes newer artists, such as Karen Kilimnik, Xavier Veilhan and Aya Uekawa, with more seasoned ones, like Ashley Bickerton and Jeff Koons, to provide variety and a fresh context for all the works involved. The Neumann family has supported these artists, among others, and it is from their collection that the showcased works are drawn. If you want an exhibition that challenges your vision of the contemporary art world, this is it.
Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, and free for members and visitors 16 and under. Opens Oct. 2 and runs until Jan. 12.
Open Tues.-Sat. Noon-6pm
Closed Sunday and Monday
