About the Exhibition
As one of the most important American modernists, Stuart Davis (1892–1964) blurred distinctions between text and image, high and low art, and abstraction and figuration, crafting a distinct style that continues to influence art being made today. Featuring some 100 of his most important, visually complex, jazz-inspired compositions, Stuart Davis: In Full Swing takes a critical approach to the development of Davis’s art and theory, paying special attention to his transformative recycling of earlier works.
