The New Humanists: Introspective Impressions from the Syracuse University Art Collection
August 20- September 27, 2015
The New Humanist sheds light on the swell of post-World War II visual artists making work rooted in the psychological state of humanity: through introspection, observation and reflection. Heavily influenced by German Expressionism, Surrealism, and the Social Realism of the 1930s, these artists sought to elicit the viewer with an emotional response- to question how we see ourselves and the world around us. Included in the exhibition is the work of Leonard Baskin, Robert Marx, Mauricio Lasansky, Nancy Grossman, Jacob Landau, Don Cortese, Jack Levine, Fredrico Castellón and José Luis Cuevas.
