Late Beatle Stuart Sutcliffe to Receive Art Exhibition

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Stuart Sutcliffe, the late artist and early bassist for the Beatles, will receive an art showcase from Harper's Books in East Hampton, New York on August 10th (running until October 14th). The exhibition, titled "Stuart Sutcliffe: Yea Yea Yea" and curated by artist Richard Prince, will feature 21 of Sutcliffe's paintings and paper-based works.

According to the Harper's website, the exhibition "seeks to recontextualize (Sutcliffe's) oeuvre within the paradigm of the contemporary art world, highlighting the enduring significance of his work for both late Modernist art history and present-day artistic practices." The selected art will emphasize "the collaged geometricism of his works on paper and the dense gestural abstraction of his paintings."
