AGAINST FORGETTING I
GAA GALLERY PROVINCETOWN
Provincetown - May 25 - July 10
Closing Reception Friday, July 6, 6 - 9 pm

"Just because paintings don’t move doesn’t mean they are still. They’re very dynamic things—they come, they go, they approach, they recede, they disappear—and that’s because they are pure feeling, like a fog or a cloud. But they are also a form of memory.” - Hans Ulrich Obrist

Gaa Gallery is pleased to announce the painting exhibitions Against Forgetting I, opening Friday, May 25 in Provincetown (through July 10) and Against Forgetting II, opening Saturday, May 26 in Wellfleet (through July 1). Against Forgetting is a thoughtful and aesthetically diverse meditation on the medium of painting, and its accompanying capabilities to convey an array of ideas regarding memory and representation.

With Against Forgetting, Gaa Gallery will present a challenging exhibition that presents the full range of painterly form, including figuration, abstraction, color, line, and narrative. The exhibition’s roster of artists includes Richard Baker, Esteban Cabeza de Baca, Rodney Dickson, Josephine Halvorson, Heidi Howard, Thoralf Knobloch, Sarah Kurz, Sarah Lutz, Michael MacMahon, Gail Marks, Susannah Phillips, Johanna Robinson, James Everett Stanley, Ena Swansea, and Erika Wastrom.

The exhibition presents a range of approaches to the power of painting: the buoyant joy of color, the political implications of the minimalist landscape, the vibratory suggestions of the human figure, and the multiplicity of narratives within abstraction. Against Forgetting is a layered, rich presentation of painting in its most sophisticated and innovative forms.
