The “Highlights” exhibition is Larry Aldrich’s personal survey of the best of the 1964-65 art season. The selection represents his choice of the most stimulating, exciting, and impressive works from many New York gallery shows. Aldrich made the commitment to show each artist in the exhibition at the time of viewing each show at their respective galleries.
In reviewing his choices at the end of the season, it was most interesting to note that four of the selected artists are internationally known: Hofmann, Dubuffet, Nevelson, and Bissier. Seven are selected from their first one-man exhibitions in a New York gallery: Kalinowski, Bridget Riley, Tadasky, Cascella, Maccio, Soto, and Tony De Lap. Five have been successfully shown once or more in previous years: Bauermeister, Bolomey, Jensen, Porter, and Trova.
Artists: Mary Bauermeister, Julius Bissier, Roger Bolomey, Pietro Cascella, Tony DeLap, Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hofmann, Alfred Jensen, Horst-Egon Kalinowski, Rómulo Macció, Louise Nevelson, Fairfield Porter, Bridget Riley, Jesús Rafael Soto, Tadasky, Ernest Trova
