WILLIAM BECKMAN: FIVE DECADES OF SELF-PORTRAITS
Opening Tomorrow, September 23, 2021
The Artist will be present from 4pm to 6pm

Forum Gallery celebrates William Beckman’s 50 years of self-portraiture with an exhibition of seventeen paintings and drawings made between 1976 and 2021. The exhibition, "William Beckman: Five Decades of Self-Portraits," will present important examples from each decade beginning with 1976 and will include a group of current paintings, illuminating the Artist’s singular and ongoing contribution to the field.

One of America’s foremost artists, William Beckman (b. 1942) is rightly known for the intimacy, communicative strength and emotional power of his figurative paintings and drawings. Working in larger-than-life and intimate scales, Beckman draws from life and memory to create compelling works that engage the viewer directly while penetrating the psyche of the individual subject. His self-portraits are uncompromising, analytic and layered portrayals of reality.

A Minnesota native, William Beckman first exhibited in New York in 1969 and joined Forum Gallery in 1993. In 2006, his portraits were the subject of a one-person exhibition at the opening of the newly-situated National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. His work is included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY), Joseph H. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, D.C.), National Portrait Gallery (Washington, D.C.), The Art Institute of Chicago (IL), Museum Moderne Kunst (Vienna, Austria), The Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh, PA), Flint Institute of Arts (MI), Milwaukee Art Museum (WI), Columbus Museum (GA), Des Moines Art Center (IA) and Frye Art Museum (Seattle, WA).

THAT EIGHTIES SHOW
Highlight: Tom Wesselmann | Robert Cottingham

Forum Gallery presents “That Eighties Show” (July 15 - September 18, 2021), a summer exhibition of thirty-five works created between 1980 and 1989, a decade of meteoric growth and accelerated modernization in economy and culture. The dedicated artists in the show responded in diverse ways to these heady, turbo-charged times that saw a dramatic return to figurative and representational means of expression. Following on from “That Seventies Show,” presented at Forum Gallery in the summer of 2011, “That Eighties Show” celebrates Forum Gallery’s sixtieth year since opening in 1961 and its dedication to figurative art.
