ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Colorado-based artists Jonathan Dankenbring and Corey Drieth will exhibit new works in sculpture, drawing and mixed-media, exploring the concept of iconoclasm – a rejection of images and iconography – and minimalism. The exhibition’s genesis was a conversation between the artists; their dialogue continues and is explored through the exhibition and an accompanying broadside publication.
Emerging in the early 1960s in rejection of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalist art is marked by an avoidance of overt symbolism and emotional content, instead calling attention to the materiality of the works through a limited palette and simple media. At its core, Minimalism asserts that art should have its own reality and not be an imitation of some other thing.
