Mimi Gross: In Her World

Image coming soon.

Dan Nadel profiles painter Mimi Gross who designed the sets and costumes for Douglas Dunn + Dancers: Antipodes at Danspace Project, New York, February 2–4, 2017.

Nadel writes: “Gross told me that she is guided by a ‘fanaticism for Titian,’ which is to say, she builds compositions from planes of color. No matter how casual, her pictures almost always feature rock-solid axial structures… At a time of renewed interest in an era that was formative for Gross—explored in books like Judith Stein’s biography of dealer Richard Bellamy, Eye of the Sixties (2016), and the exhibition ‘Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952–1965,’ now at New York University’s Grey Art Gallery—it’s worth looking back at an artist who witnessed much and made vital work, but received very little recognition, due in part to the all-too-common combination of art world trends and sexism.”
