With Remembering Henry's Show: Selected Works 1978-2008, The Brant Foundation Art Study Center pays homage to the late Henry Geldzahler's groundbreaking 1969 exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970, which, in Geldzahler's words, established "the New York School as the historical successor to the School of Paris," and has been a continuous influence on the direction in which The Brant Foundation's collection is built. In presenting the exhibition, The Brant Foundation attempts to continue the tradition passed on by Geldzahler: to educate the public, making works available to institutions and individuals for scholarly study and examination, and to represent artists in depth.
