"Paradise Lost / Paradise Regained: American Visions of the New Decade"
June 10 - September 30 1984
Paradise Lost/Paradise Regained: American Visions of the New Decade
Organized by Lynn Gumpert, Ned Rifkin, and Marcia Tucker, commissioners of the U.S. Pavillion, 41st Venice Biennale; occurred off site at the U.S. Pavillion, 41st Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy
"The notion of Earthly Paradise, of the Golden Age, of a Utopian existence, is important to an understanding of much contemporary painting in America today because it symbolizes a national longing for peace and security at a time when artists are seeking to reinvest the world with meaning."
-Lynn Gumpert, Ned Rifkin, and Marcia Tucker, Paradise Lost/Paradise Regained catalogue
