GAYLEN GERBER & MICHELLE GRABNER

Supports

In the smaller Support paintings Gerber (1955) first paints a more traditionally scaled canvas grey, and then he gives that painting to another artist who creates a work on top of his. Gaylen Gerber celebrates the unifying role of art by suggesting that meaning does not come from a single work but from an interaction of works, thus becoming a metaphor for the entire Eldorado the opening exhibition of Mudam.
