Christine Mehring, Department Chair and Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago, is the author of Blinky Palermo: Abstraction of an Era (2008), an in-depth historical study of Palermo’s practice and its significance for post-war art. Guiding viewers through Shared Eye, Mehring offers her knowledge of Palermo’s work and explores how it is a touchstone for artists today, including Benning, who are considering the possibilities of abstraction and formal structure.
