September 30–October 30: Hare's one-man exhibition David Hare: The Cronus Series at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, shows 18 paintings, ten drawings, and five sculptures. Writing in the New Yorker magazine, Harold Rosenberg concludes: "The 'Cronus' creations have a psychological authenticity that leads one to assume that Hare has survived visits to troubled areas of the imagination.... The 'Cronus' show at the Guggenheim is a rich sampling of an undertaking that is extraordinary yet central to the art of our time." Katherine Kuh, writing in the Saturday Review, notes Hare's vocabulary of "multicolored sculptures from familiar materials in combination with synthetic ones," "collage and montage," describing them as a type of "anti-sculpture."
