The Murphy and Dine Gallery in New York has a really interesting exhibit that is currently showing called “Generations Collide.” As the title suggests, this group show is displaying work by artists of many different generations and the result is a feast for the eyes and mind. The exhibit features the works of William Wood, John Ross Rist, Lisa de Kooning, Matisse Patterson, Bob Colacello and Daniel Fuller and is being curated by Tripoli Patterson. You’ll see trippy photography, sculptures, classic paintings with a modern edge as well as vintage photos of the New York social scene from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Admission is free, so don’t miss out. I talked with curator Tripoli Patterson when I went to see this cool exhibit and he was very nice and offered up a lot of background information on each artist. If you don’t get the chance to talk to Mr. Patterson, you can find out more about each artist in the exhibit by clicking here. The Murphy and Dine Gallery is located at 520 West 27th Street and Generations Collide runs through May 27th, 2010. If you cannot make it, don’t worry. You’ll have another chance to see this collection at the Tripoli Gallery of Modern Art at Job’s Lane in Southampton from May 27 – June 16, 2010.
