Artists Choice: Amy Sillman—The Shape of Shape

Oct 21, 2019 – Apr 12, 2020
11 W 53rd St, New York, NY 10019, United States

In an essay she wrote in 2016, the painter Amy Sillman described her work with color as “anthropomorphic, relational, emotional, psychological, and corporeal … In other words, let us welcome the collision of mistakes, accidents, desires, contradictions, destruction, and possible disasters that color embodies.” It’s not a bad way to think about Sillman’s art, which she has called a “physical thinking process.” At MoMA, the 64-year-old Sillman curates “The Shape of Shape,” in which she showcases 75 rarely seen works from the museum’s collection. —E.C.
