Throwback Thursday: Members' Preview for Jim Dine: Five Themes

December 8, 2016

On December 7, 1984, Albright-Knox Members attended a Members' Preview of the exhibition Jim Dine: Five Themes, which presented an extensive mid-career retrospective of approximately 70 works by this distinguished American artist who emerged in the Pop milieu of the sixties as an assemblagist-painter.

Works in a variety of media executed during the last two decades focused on five major themes of symbolic of different events and interests in the artist's life: the now-familiar motifs of hearts, robes, tools, gates, and trees.

The exhibition was organized by the Walker Art Center and held at the following institutions: Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (February 19–April 15, 1984); Phoenix Art Museum (May 13–June 24, 1984); St. Louis Art Museum (July 22–September 3, 1984); Akron Museum (September 22–November 11, 1984); Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo (December 7, 1984–January 20, 1985); and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. (February 20–April 28, 1985).
