Corcoran Biennial

October 30 - November 18


This exhibition, circulated by the American Federation of Arts, is composed of 32 works of art selected from the 1963 Cocoran Biennial. Included in the 1963 Biennial exhibition were 118 works invited by the Corcoran Director, Herman Warner Williams Jr., and 27 paintings chosen by the Committee of Final Selection and Award, Ben Shahn, Conrad MarcaRelli and Gordon M. Smith. The exhibition represented many directions of contemporary American art with the formerly dominate abstract-expressionist style giving way in part to hard-edge geometric abstraction, softly-defined landscape, the influences of the New York “pop art” and the west coast figurative schools.
