Analia Saban

September 24, 2016-March 18, 2017

Surveying art history as if it was a “murder scene,” she plumbs the histories of painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography to challenge their limits and capacities by making the constituent parts of each medium the very subject matter of her inquiry. Saban is also committed to showing how every medium is material of this world. Gender, labor, and social context haunt her abstractions, exposing the ideological repercussions of what it means to go deep into the aesthetic properties and possibilities of any medium. Details

 

Blake Rayne: Cabin of the Accused

October 22, 2016-March 18, 2017

Cabin of the Accused is the first survey show of New York-based artist Blake Rayne. Over the last 20 years, Rayne’s work has been central to questioning, contributing, and putting to test contemporary beliefs regarding painting. Comprised of more than 30 works, Cabin of the Accused neither reconstructs or presents a chronological or thematic selection of Rayne’s work, but it rearticulates specific elements, organizational attitudes, and pictorial procedures.  Details
