Three Decades of Contemporary Art

August 15–December 31, 2009

Ryan McGinness, The True Knowledge of Things, 2007. acrylic on canvas, unique, 96"x96" Collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art San DiegoSustainability of the art world is based on the concerted effort of a collective commonwealth of museums, galleries, auction houses and art collectors, all linked together by a common thread — the art and the artist. This exhibition, a survey of artists shown by Quint Gallery, will explore how the vision of one local gallery has contributed to the commonwealth and document the changes seen in the artistic community of San Diego, in the art world, and for each individual artist as they have found their notoriety and artistic voice.

Featuring paintings, sculptures, installations, drawings and prints, the exhibition will include work by bold and innovative artists such as Jean Lowe, Mel Bochner, Kim MacConnel, Ryan McGinness, Manny Farber and Patricia Patterson. Exhibited together, the creations of these artists embody the vitality of the past three decades of art, and will further the public’s understanding and appreciation of our current contemporary art scene.
