Suggestivism

FEBRUARY 1 - 27, 2019

An exhibition curated by Nathan Spoor:

The concept of Suggestivism does not center around claiming a title for giving any movement a name, but for introducing a common creative thread amongst several disparate and unique voices within the modern art world.

Nathan Spoor first engaged the concept and usage of the term, "Suggestivism", during his graduate school days to conceptualize the vibrant and engaging style of work that I create. ...he made the discovery that art historian Sadakichi Hartmann has actually used the term 'suggestivism' in his critical texts to certify the modern ideal of "an art that is possibly more than it seems, or possibly an art that is not what it seems (as stated in by Jane Calhoun Weaver in the introduction to Hartmann's influential Critical Modernist: Collected Art Writings).
