PORTLAND, ME.- The exhibition 'Alex Katz: Wedding Dress', now on view at the Portland Museum of Art, displays a series of large-scale paintings that highlight the artist’s interest in the intersection of art and fashion, the texture of the painted surface, and the flatness of pictorial space. In his art autobiography Invented Symbols, Katz wrote, “Fashion is of the moment, and art is supposed to be forever.” This observation guides the design of this exhibition, and centers time, and timelessness, as a focal point.

Organized by a curatorial team that includes the artist himself, Alex Katz, Wedding Dress will offer a unique opportunity to situate Katz’s work in relation to performance, figuration, and fashion.

An iconic garment on a massive scale.
