For over 70 years, Flack has been making art in New York and boy does she have stories to tell.
The veteran photorealist painter talks to Hyperallergic about her work and her new film biography, Queen of Hearts.
Hyperallergic has the exclusive premiere of the trailer for Queen of Hearts: Audrey Flack, an upcoming documentary about the abstract expressionist-turned-photorealist.
For young painters today, Abstract Expressionism is ancient history; a few rooms in MoMA’s permanent collection galleries, a handful of images from the pages of Gardner or Janson, all set before a backdrop of a now mythical Downtown Manhattan of $200-dollar-a-month lofts.
Mana Contemporary and the Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation have a meticulous show of photorealist artwork, titled Our Own Directions. The exhibition, on view from now until January 2012, features painting, sculpture and photography from the private collection of Louis K. and Susan P. Meisel.
