Bernard Gilardi: Gender Dynamic
Bernard Gilardi (1920-2008) recently had his first one-person exhibition in New York City. PSG is celebrating this accomplishment with a select exhibition of his gender themed work in the Project Space, opening Gallery Night, April 26. Ahead of his time, this Milwaukee native who made 400 paintings in his basement over a 40 year period, dealt with humorous and complex issues of gender fluidity and relationships throughout his career. Come see what the New York Times, Artsy and Hyperallergic recently had to say about this Midwesterner's prodigious and impressive body of work. "In Gilardi’s paintings, we see a feverish, unleashed imagination at play,"according to Artsy. Gilardi may be one of Wisconsin's most important (and certainly most quizzical) historic artists. The exhibition at Shrine Gallery, NY, was presented by Maurizio Cattelan.
