Norte Maar is pleased to present Giacometti and a selection of contemporary drawings, January 26-February 24, 2013. The exhibition features a single drawing (double sided) by the great modern master Alberto Giacometti. The work is on loan from a private collection, New York, and will be the source of discussion in a show as it is juxtaposed with and against the work of ten contemporary artists.
This is not the first time Norte Maar has brought historic material to Brooklyn. The Boys of Bushwick exhibition which open in April 2011 and featured the illustrations of Richard Haines, included loans from a work by Paul Cadmus and Pavel Tchelitchew. Additionally, Norte Maar has been noted for juxtaposing established artists with emerging talent as evident in it’s To be Lady exhibition currently on view in New York City. The show includes historic work by Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, Louise Bourgeios, with work by mid-career and rising stars.
