Street Talk: Chris Daze Ellis in Dialogue with the Collection

A member of the second generation of New York graffiti artists, Chris Ellisbest known by his street name, Dazehas been hailed as one of the most important writers of his time. Daze began his career in graffiti as a teenager, tagging subway cars alongside Crash, Seen, Lady Pink, and Futura. Turning his focus from trains to canvas in the early 1980s, Daze has been one of the most successful graffiti artists of his generation to transition from street to studio. Using spray paint in combination with the more traditional media of oil and acrylic to capture the energy and essence of the urban scene, Dazes large-scale paintings are a provocative blend of spontaneity and control, abstraction and representation. This exhibition presents recent works in juxtaposition with a group of paintings, prints, and photographs chosen by the artist from the Addisons permanent collection. Revealing intriguing and unexpected resonances in artistic approach, theme, and subject matter, this conversation not only sets Dazes work within the context of American art history, but also provides new insight into some of the museums familiar favorites.Chris Daze Ellis is the Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Residence for spring 2014.

POP! Selections from the Collection

Characterized by bright, explosive, and accessible imagery, Pop Art was unlike any other movement of the 20th century in its instant popularity and its all-encompassing cultural impact. Emerging in the U.S. in the early 1960s, a time of unprecedented economic prosperity, Pop Art explored the image world of a rapidly growing consumer society. Taking inspiration from advertising, pulp magazines, billboards, movies, television, comic strips, and shop windows, and basing their techniques and style on aspects of media and mass reproduction, artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, and Andy Warhol blurred the lines between art and commodity in humorous, witty, and often ironic works that can be seen as both celebrations and critiques of popular culture. POP! includes prints, sculptures, paintings, and artists books drawn from the permanent collection, many never before exhibited at the Addison.

Loisaida: New York's Lower East Side in the '80s

The decades leading up to the 1980s were a time of ferment and unrest in the country, triggered by events such as the Vietnam War, the bombing in Cambodia, the Kent State shootings, black power initiatives, gay riots at Stonewall Inn, and for the City of New York, the fiscal crisis in 1974. All of this set the stage in the early 80s for what the Boston-based, avant-garde collector John P. Axelrod (Phillips Academy Class of 1964) has called a roiling environment for the emergence of new and exciting art forms. In New York two distinct yet intertwined threads of art emerged: Graffiti, which left its spray-painted tags on the streets, bridges, trains, and abandoned buildings beginning first in Upper Manhattan and the Bronx, and then spreading soon after to the outer boroughs, and Loisaida, the colloquial Latino pronunciation of Manhattans Lower East Side, where this diverse group of artists concentrated their activity. It is Loisaidas uniquely American expression that has captured Axelrods most recent collecting enthusiasm and resulted in the selection from his personal collection that is presented in this exhibition.
