MODMEN, while playfully exploiting the "MADMEN" time period of the Modernist era, explores modern basics emphasizing form, line, and color. Featured local and national artists include Mary Addison Hackett, Rachel Kice, Pamela Staker, Charles Clary, Natalie Dunham, and Charles Ivey. Our collection of Herman Miller design classics and 1950's black and white commercials will also be highlighted. Modern fashion, cocktails, and music is certain to dominate the night. 10% of all art proceeds will benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission who are "dedicated to helping the hungry, homeless and hurting." The exhibition is free and open to the public, March 1- May 18th, Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm.
Modernism is a broad spectrim, generally constituting all anti-traditional, experimental work from 1860 to 1970. However, the basis of Modernist art and design continues to liberate color's emotional impact, interpret form and function, and reduce the subject to it's basic elements. Content, concept and story slowly become lost, while expressive abstraction and geometry prevail. MODMEN will highlight part of today's extension of the modernist art and design movement.
