Svenja Deininger Second Chances First Impressions

February 4, 2017 - April 16, 2017

The Norton’s sixth RAW (Recognition of Art by Women) exhibition will premiere the first solo museum exhibition of Svenja Deininger (Austrian, born 1974) in the United States. Deininger is one of a new generation of abstract painters, aware of the rich history of abstraction, yet creating complex canvases originating from her sophisticated, knowledgeable and intuitive response to process, imagery, and materials. This exhibition of 22 canvases has been assembled with the artist’s participation and explores specific themes of the last five years. The Norton’s annual RAW exhibition was founded in 2011 through generous funding by the Leonard and Sophie Davis Fund/ML Dauray Arts Initiative to promote the work of living women artists. A publication will accompany the exhibition. Organized by the  Norton Museum, Cheryl Brutvan, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Contemporary Art.

Organized by the Norton Museum of Art.

This is the sixth exhibition of RAW - Recognition of Art by Women - made possible by the Leonard and Sophie Davis Fund/MLDauray Arts Initiative.
