Broad Art Museum
Hope Gangloff’s paintings of Brooklyn bohemians — primarily her friends caught seemingly unaware in moments of leisure — borrow heavily from late 19th- and early 20th-century expressionists such as Van Gogh, Egon Schiele, Gustave Klimt, and Suzanne Valadon; creating a sympathetic link between the historic avant-garde and post-postmodern hipsterism. For her exhibition at the Broad MSU, Gangloff presented 10 recent paintings entangled in a salon style hang with approximately twenty historic works from the collection. In addition, Gangloff created an original wall mural on the thirty foot high slanted wall of the space.
Hope Gangloff was born in 1974 in Amityville, NY. She is a graduate of The Cooper Union School of Art and Science and has exhibited nationally, most recently in solo shows at the Broad Art Museum, MI; the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, MO.
