Françoise Gilot Exhibition at Berman Museum of Art
TRANSITIONS: WORKS BY FRANÇOISE GILOT
June 1 through Sept. 23, Main Gallery
Curated by Mel Yoakum, Ph.D.
Lecture by curator Mel Yoakum, Ph.D., Sept. 20 at 3 p.m.
Transitions: Works by Françoise Gilot focuses on the evolution of Gilot’s approach to composition and color beginning with her seminal Labyrinth Series and including key works into the 21st century. Rich abstraction in a bold, powerful palette, a mainstay of her work, transitions to references to the figure, botanicals and still life. Iconic images such as orbs, birds, water and earth elements are investigated in tandem with color juxtapositions that are built up from layers and layers of pigment. The exhibition runs from June 1 through Sept. 23. An illustrated lecture by curator Mel Yoakum, Ph.D. will be presented Sept. 20 at 3 p.m.
The exhibition is curated by Mel Yoakum, Ph.D., author of Stone Echoes: Original Prints by Françoise Gilot and a scholar of her work. He began his association with Gilot in 1987, organizing exhibitions and cataloguing her extensive oeuvre of oil paintings and works on paper. He has authored numerous essays and catalogues for the artist and he also serves on the Board of Directors of the Berman Museum of Art.
