Alex Katz: Gathering
Guggenheim Museum, New York
21 October 2022 - 20 February 2023

Across eight decades of intense creative production, The upcoming Alex Katz Gathering exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum has sought to capture visual experience in the present tense. Whether evoking a glancing exchange between friends or a shaft of light filtered through trees, he has aimed to create a record of « quick things passing ». Staged in the city where Katz has lived and worked his entire life, and prepared with the close collaboration of the artist, this retrospective will fill the museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda. Encompassing paintings, oil sketches, collages, drawings, prints, and freestanding “cutout” works, the exhibition will begin with the artist’s intimate sketches of riders on the New York City subway from the late 1940s and will culminate in the rapturous, immersive landscapes that have dominated his output in recent years. This exhibition will be on view from 21 October 2022 to 20 February 2023. Read more information here.
