Allison Schulnik Gets “Cryptic”

Showing alongside Francisco Goya, Folkert de Jong, Hiraki Sawa, Dana Schutz, Javier Tellez, and Erika Wanenmacher, Allison Schulnik will be keeping some pretty good artistic company during her upcoming exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum, St. Louis. Featured in “Cryptic: The Use of Allegory in Contemporary Art, with a Master Class from Goya” curated by Laura Steward, Schulnik will have several specifically selected paintings shown in the 8,000 square foot exhibition space – which will be accompanied by a publication and lecture program.

Additionally, Schulnik’s works (in addition those of the other featured artists) will be paired in conversation with a group of Goya’s prints – creating an ongoing dialogue between their open-ended allegories both past and present.

Opening this Friday, May 20th, 2011, the exhibition remains on view through August 14th, 2011.
