Judit Reigl: Annus Mirabilis, Annus Horribilis. Works from May 1954 to June 1955

Opening December 11, 2014

Considered one of the most original figures of post-World War II art, Judit Reigl is hailed for discarding boundaries and rules once deemed absolute. Reigl defies traditional and often antagonistic dichotomies as she obliterates the distinction between the front and back of the canvas, utilizing both sides of the work, alternates between figurative and non-objective and reconciles aspects of Surrealism and abstraction.
