No Longer Showing.
This group exhibition brought together more than twenty New York-based artists whose works engage diverging conceptual approaches to abstract painting and question the fundamental roots of the medium’s modernist legacies. Renegotiating histories of painting with a mixture of both irony and sincerity, these artists appropriate aspects of non-narrative abstraction as “ready-made” vocabularies to be reinvented. Whether resulting from detached and mechanized modes of production or more direct, hand-rendered means, the works’ formal gestural qualities are offered up in relation to conceptual, minimalist, process, and pop art traditions. Artists included Richard Aldrich, Polly Apfelbaum, Kerstin Braetsch, Ana Cardoso, Jessica Dickinson, Cheryl Donegan, Keltie Ferris, Wade Guyton, Jaya Howey, Alex Hubbard, Jacqueline Humphries, Jacob Kassay, Jutta Koether, Nate Lowman, Seth Price, R.H. Quaytman, Blake Rayne, Davis Rhodes, Cheyney Thompson, Patricia Treib, Charline von Heyl, and Kelley Walker.
