“This is art that pushes the boundaries and raises important questions.”
“Art Got Into Me”: The Work of Engels the Artist, a ten-year survey featuring more than fifty works by Haitian- born and Brooklyn-based artist Engels the Artist, will be on view at the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, NY, October 9–December 22, 2019. The opening reception is on October 30 from 6:30 – 8 pm. The artist also will be in residency at the Neuberger from October 30 to November 15, where he is creating a new work inside the galleries.
For Engels, the canvas is a limited space that requires subversion, inversion, expansion, or containment. To create his artwork, he engages in a metonymic game, whereby the container becomes the contained, and the support becomes the object itself. Calling into question the notion of what constitutes painting, Engels explains, “Stretchers lay bare. Canvas is crumpled, torn, or shredded. Even staples can be more than simple fasteners and can function as paint”. Abstract and poetic, his sculptural paintings are both aesthetically appealing and profoundly meaningful.
Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with the artist at the museum during special public studio visits scheduled on Thursday, November 14 and Saturday, November 16 from 12:30 to 3:30 pm in conjunction with the 2019 (T)HERE Global Festival.
A fully illustrated monograph, the first in the artist’s career, also accompanies the exhibition. Organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art in collaboration with the Willowell Foundation, the exhibition is curated by Dr. Patrice Giasson, the Alex Gordon Curator of Art of the Americas, with the assistance of Cynthia Newman.
