Nice. Luc Tuymans
September 27 - January 5, 2013
1515 Sul Ross, Houston, TX 77006
Nice. Luc Tuymans will present approximately 30 paintings by the artist from his earliest mature work G. Dam, 1978 to canvases finished as recently as 2011. While most are portraits, others, such as Bloodstains, 1993 and Fingers, 1995, illustrate the artist’s intentionally elliptical approach to representation.
Tuymans’s works will be placed in dialogue with a selection of portraits from the Menil Collection’s permanent holdings. Exploiting the diversity of the collection, the exhibition will include works from ancient, African, and Native American cultures, alongside modern and contemporary examples of portraiture.
