A Trip Back in Time at Paul Kasmin Gallery

Recently I visited Paul Kasmin Gallery’s 293 Tenth Avenue locationto see their current exhibition, “The New York School, 1969: Henry Geldzahler at the Metropolitan Museum of Art,” which runs through March 14, 2015. The gallery, which also displays works at two other Chelsea locations, is easy enough to walk past, but the art inside is not to be missed.

The Henry Geldzahler show is like stepping into a mid-century time machine decorated with paintings by pop artist Andy Warhol, abstract expressionist Robert Motherwell and others from that era. “The New York School, 1969” specifically features artworks from Geldzahler’s “New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Paul Kasmin version serves as a best of—whittling down the original 400+ works to more select number—and includes a few related works that were not featured in the original exhibition.
