Gesture: The Human Figure After Abstraction (Postponed)

Presented by Manetti Shrem Museum, UC Davis at Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

NOTE: The Manetti Shrem Museum of Art will temporarily close to the public beginning 3/16/2020 as part of UC Davis’ efforts to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, visitors, and the community at large.

This exhibition presents 25 works by UC Davis art department first-generation faculty artists Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest, Ruth Horsting, Manuel Neri, Roland Petersen, Wayne Thiebaud, and William T. Wiley that emerged following a seismic shift in art philosophy in the 1950s. Ultimately, these artists’ varied art practices — sculpture, painting and drawing — share a singular characteristic: a commitment to innovation and creative freedom. Anchored by Manuel Neri’s figurative work, this exhibition includes 17 works from the university’s Fine Arts Collection.
