Victor Arruda and Carroll Dunham’s paintings and drawings comprise the next exhibition at Almeida & Dale

06/28/2024

From July 13, Almeida & Dale is presenting an exhibition that brings together Victor Arruda (Cuiabá, Brazil, 1947) and Carroll Dunham (New Haven, USA, 1949). Their works are linked through their explorations of masculinity, conflict, sex, and consciousness through bent and gendered figures that exist in and against impossible environments, and vibrant colorways.

Victor Arruda and Carroll Dunham came of age in very different 1970s. Arruda’s 1970s and 80s in Rio de Janeiro were under a military dictatorship. Dunham was immersed in the conceptual art world of New York, trying to find a personal and procedural language. Both were liberated through looking at art, and sometimes ostensibly illicit material: Arruda has called himself and Dunham the children of Robert Crumb. A figure of artistic liberation for many, these artists included, Crumb’s comics offer permission for the creative impulse to take any form and push against aesthetic or moral boundaries. Additionally, the two artists share an omnivorous interest in art history, pulling inspiration from a heterogenous collection of sources from mannerist painting to surrealism to bathroom graffiti. 

Examining Myself and Others: Victor Arruda and Carroll Dunham is curated by Dan Nadel (general curator of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, Los Angeles) and opens on July 13, 2024 at Almeida & Dale.
