Rothko/ Sugimoto: Dark paintings and Seascapes
A volume highlighting the inaugural exhibition that juxtaposed Mark Rothko's late black and grey paintings with Hiroshi Sugimoto's contemporary photographs of bodies of water. This exhibition marked the first private gallery presentation of Rothko's work in London in nearly fifty years and continued Pace's five-decade tradition of exhibitions that explore affinities between artists working across decades and mediums. 'Dark Paintings and Seascapes' pairs eight acrylic paintings by Rothko and eight gelatin silver prints by Sugimoto, revealing two different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions. Exhibition at Pace Gallery, Oct 4 - Nov 17, 2012.
