1708 Gallery is pleased to announce What were you after then? what are you after now? an exhibition of early works by prolific artist and 1708 Board member Cindy Neuschwander. This retrospective presents selections from two bodies of work from Neuschwander’s formative years, focusing on collage, photography, scraffito, text, and painting, and her deeply personal engagement with figure and identity.
What were you after then? what are you after now? features works from 1984 - 1990 when photography was prominent in Neuschwander’s creative process. Her saturated palette and pointed juxtapositions encapsulate the relationships, idiosyncrasies, and artistic intuition that would inform the breadth of her career. At times playful and others starkly domineering these works signal a sophisticated Feminism that transcends generations.
What were you after then? what are you after now? is presented in conjunction with Reynolds Gallery’s current exhibition, A Measure of Life, featuring Neuschwander’s work from 1999 - 2010.
