"Mr. and Mrs. R. Padgett, Mr. and Mrs. D. Gallup" (1971) is reproduced from

Presence and attentiveness in 'Alex Katz: Gathering'

"Mr. and Mrs. R. Padgett, Mr. and Mrs. D. Gallup" (1971) is reproduced from Holiday Gift Staff Pick Alex Katz: Gathering, published to accompany the quintessential nonagenarian NYC painter's blockbuster retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum. "Presence is … Katz’s game," David Breslin writes. "But instead of conjuring a melancholic present forever haunted by an unfathomable past, he paints one so rippling with life that it does (at least) two notable things. First, it models an attentiveness that is almost Buddhist in its acceptance of time’s flow, an engagement with an idea of change that refuses anything to do with progress; but the paintings, for all of their openness, also maintain a hermeticism and an insularity that banishes even the most empathetic viewer from residing within it. Live your own life, the painting shouts at me! Live it like you’re riding each link in your pulse’s precarious chain!"

FEATURED PUBLISHER

CARA

Opening October 1, 2022, CARA (The Center for Art, Research and Alliances) is an emergent arts nonprofit, research center and publisher that aims to expand public discourses and historical records to reflect art’s abundant pasts, presents and futures. CARA was born over a five-year research period and developed in conversation with cultural workers aspiring to create just futures through the arts. CARA’s formal launch builds upon a two-year publishing program with a schedule of new initiatives including research fellowships, exhibitions and public programs that seek to challenge dominant narratives and reflect the abundance of arts and culture.
CARA envisions itself as a space for un-learning, kinship and care, and values the practice of being an organization-in-formation in perpetuity.
