About the exhibition

We are pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Joan Snyder at Galerie Haas Zurich. Since the late 1960s, the American artist (*1940) has been exploring the possibilities of abstract painting, inspiring generations of emerging artists with her transformative approach. Incorporating her strong belief in the idea of a “female sensibility,” Snyder developed a very unique formal language challenging the male-dominated art world early on.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with a comprehensive essay by Norman L. Kleeblatt, former Susan and Elihu Rose Chief Curator at the Jewish Museum in New York, as well as an insightful interview between Joan Snyder and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London. 

Catalogue

Excerpt

“Transformative feminist acts underpinned by a transpositional process between artistic genres, place Snyder as a conductor of painterly form. She fills her canvases with emotional codes and notes, tones and gestures, harmonies, and cacophonies. Freely associative in both meaning and materials, her paintings and their component elements are enigmatic in effect.”
