6 American Galleries Highlighting Abstraction

As art exhibitions have begun to reopen amidst the continuing coronavirus pandemic, we've discovered that a number of American galleries are highlighting abstraction, even though figuration is what's generally trending today.

Rounding up six recently opened shows in Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, New York, and Miami, we offer a contemplative tour of some of the ways artists are using abstraction today.
