The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth has announced that this October, it will present Moving In Place, an exhibition of 25 paintings by the celebrated contemporary artist Susan Rothenberg. From her start in SoHo in 1975, Rothenberg has been associated with horses, dogs, eerie landscapes and fragmented body parts — and, in general, with bringing intense figuration and sometimes violent, symbolic imagery to minimalist abstraction.

Rothenberg moved to a New Mexico ranch in the ’90s — the Modern’s exhibition is in conjunction with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, where it will travel in 2010 — and her paintings have reflected that changed perspective, including a switch from acrylic to oils and an interest in drawing.  The exhibition, organized by the Modern’s chief curator, Michael Auping, will feature paintings from all these periods, right up to her most recent images of puppet-like hands and arms, and will also include the publication of a major, full-color catalog on Rothenberg.
