For more than 20 years, artist Laura Owens has pioneered an innovative—and at times controversial—approach to painting that has made her one of the most influential artists of her generation. Her bold and experimental work challenges traditional assumptions about figuration and abstraction, as well as the relationships among avant-garde art, craft, pop culture, and technology. Laura Owens, the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s 20-year career, will feature over 60 paintings and objects from the mid-1990s until today. The exhibition, which also includes a number of loans from local private collections, highlights the evolution of her art over the past few years, showing how the early work sets the stage for gripping new paintings and installations.
