Your history is not our history

Hosted by Haunch of Venison New York, this exhibition was organized by artists David Salle and Richard Phillips of works produced in the 1980s by artists working in New York City.

These two painters from two different generations share the belief that the different manifestations of art in the 1980s – painting as well as the so called ‘critique art’ came out of the a shared feeling for life ‘in extremis’ and the oppositional characterisation of those ways of making art, as if one is an antidote to the other, is wrong and obscures the deeper structures of meaning at work.
