François Ghebaly Gallery is pleased to present Bourgeois Pro blems\, a group show curated by critic and curator Catherine Taft\, with wo rk by Los Angeles-based artists Nancy Buchanan\, Nikhil Murthy\, and Margie Schnibbe\, and New Haven-based Jeff Ostergren. 

Bourgeois Probl ems responds to the current economic climate (and those of recessions past) through humorous\, cynical\, flashy and sharp commentary. The work include d in this show is a cathartic\, therapeutic\, and at times diagrammatic ref lection of modern problems as well as literal and figurative forms of depre ssion. The simple\, diaristic drawings of Margie Schnibbe\, for example\, r eveal both the flux of inner thoughts and anxieties and the concrete accoun ting of daily life. Similar to Schnibbe’s “figurative” drawings\, Nancy Buc hanan’s untitled embroideries decoratively record economic fluctuations and statistics and\, in a characteristically capitalist conceptual move\, the completion of these pieces was partially out-sourced to Haitian artist\, Lo uise Evlyne Chapentier. Nikhil Murthy also takes a formal approach toward s tatistics\, translating the data from our recent market crash into the edit ing pattern of his video\, which splices together car crash footage from a big budget indy movie “Redline” (2007) with train crash footage from Buster Keaton’s 1926 silent film “The General.” The work of Jeff Ostergren\, on t he other hand\, appropriates advertisements for luxury goods\, pharmaceutic als\, and fiscal services to produce a dizzying and vivid mass market onsla ught.
