Orlando Museum of Art says
ORLANDO MUSEUM OF ART TO HOST PREVIEW RECEPTION FOR 'METAMODERN' AND 'HAROLD GARDE: MID-CENTURY TO THIS CENTURY' TOMORROW [FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25] -- MEMBERS RECEPTION @ 6 P.M.; GENERAL PUBLIC OPENING @ 7 P.M.

Two exciting exhibits will share the spotlight, as the Orlando Museum of Art hosts MetaModern and Harold Garde: Mid-Century to This Century. The exhibits will open with a preview reception TOMORROW [Friday, September 25; OMA Members preview at 6 p.m.; general public opening at 7 p.m.].

MetaModern will be on view until December 6; Harold Garde: Mid-Century to This Century will be on view until January 3, 2016.

In the fresh and provocative work presented in MetaModern, contemporary artists refer both literally and conceptually to iconic design objects of the mid-20th century. This exhibition includes video, sculpture and works on paper by 19 international artists that include Conrad Bakker, Constantin Boym, Kendell Carter, Jordi Colomer, William Cordova, Elmgreen and Dragset, Fernanda Fragateiro, Terence Gower, Olga Koumoundouros, Jill Magid, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Dorit Margreiter, Josiah McElheny, Edgar Orlaineta, Gabriel Sierra, Simon Starling, Clarissa Tossin, Barbara Visser and James Welling.

The artists in this exhibition, most of whom were born in the 1960s, question the reverence accorded to classic modernism. Too young to have grown up eating their breakfast cereal from a Russel Wright spoon while seated in an Eames molded chair, these artists -- working in the United States, Europe, and Latin America, in video, photography, and sculpture -- appropriate the language of the modernist movement critically, using it to interrogate the meaning of style and its relationship to history.

Harold Garde: Mid-Century to This Century brings together over 35 paintings that represent two distinct periods of the artist’s work highlighting the breadth of Garde’s career, while revealing a continuity of purpose that has been the foundation of hs artistic development. Garde’s extraordinary artistic career spans over 70 years.

Graduating from Columbia University in 1951, Garde was immersed in the New York art world just as Abstract Expressionism was gaining worldwide attention. His early engagement with this movement is reflected in a lifetime of work that is imbued with expressive vitality and creative discovery.

On Sunday, September 27 [1:30-3 p.m.], the Orlando Museum of Art will also host Dale Schierholt’s intimate film portrait of Garde, “Art & Spirit.” For information on this viewing [that is FREE to the general public], visit:
