Clarence Morgan - Layers

Clarence Morgan and Howard Oransky Exhibition at Form+Content

Form + Content Gallery presents Layers of Time, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Clarence Morgan, Stuart Nielsen, and Howard Oransky. The exhibition celebrates the perspective of artistic change over time, in recognition of the decades-long dedication each artist has brought to their studio practice. The artists also have a shared connection to the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota: Clarence Morgan is a member of the faculty, Stuart Nielsen is an alumnus, and Howard Oransky is a member of the staff. Morgan and Oransky showed their work together twice before at Form + Content Gallery: in Shared Distance in 2009 and in Patterns of Dialogue in 2016.
Clarence Morgan - Working Overtime

Working OverTime: Works on Paper by Professor Clarence Morgan

What does devotion to one’s practice extended over a lifetime entail? To painters Clarence Morgan and David Rich, each in their sixth decade, time has become compressed, with a degree of urgency about its limitations and passage. Yet both are known to, without reluctance or hesitation, revisit work done decades ago, to pick up their tools and search within both dimensions of painting and of time, of then and of now. This exhibit presents a long-time dialogue between two painters trains of thought, picked up, clarified, informed and strengthened by years of working and visiting with each other over time
Ana Mendieta - Creek

Ana Mendieta Exhibition Featured in Paris Review

Until relatively recently, the moving-image works have been characterized by curators and scholars as documentary, records of live activity or performance, rather than complete works in themselves. “Covered in Time and History,” curated by Lynn Lukkas and Howard Oransky, and the largest exhibition of Mendieta’s films to date, counters and expands this notion, tracing the conscious evolution of the artist’s films between 1971 and 1981. The results are striking.
