Andrea Rosen Gallery is thrilled to announce a highly unique exhibition that joins in conversation works by Jacob Kassay\, Olivier Moss et and Lawrence Weiner. Presented at our new Gallery 2 location\, which is dedicated to content-driven\, experimental and historical exhibitions\, thi s project is the outcome of a rare gathering and communication between thes e three artists.

Crafting significant dialogues and unexpecte d relationships between historical artists and those of a younger generatio n is a defining aspect of Andrea Rosen's Gallery 2 program\, which seeks to broaden our basis of visual reference and education. The focal point of th e exhibition is a shared installation comprising a single yellow wall paint ing by Olivier Mosset upon which a new painting by Jacob Kassay—the irregul ar shape of which is defined by the repurposing of canvas scraps from other projects---and Lawrence Weiner's A 36" X 36" removal to the lathing or support wall of plaster or wallboard from a wall (1968)\, from the coll ection of the Museum of Modern Art\, New York\, are hung.

On one hand\, the installation may be considered as a formalist exercise -- a three-layer relief that\, when viewed from afar\, appears to be a flattened image. On the other\, the combination of the works\, in relation to each o ther and within the gallery setting\, inspires new revelations about those works and the relationship between the artists. "A yellow wall is a yellow wall\, but I like that it is questioned by its situation (the gallery) and the works of other artists whom I respect\," remarks Mosset. The exchange b etween these three artists not only addresses conceptual abstraction and th e significance of space\; presence and absence\; it develops new affiliatio ns between works that reference the hand\, material and process.

Additional paintings by Jacob Kassay and Olivier Mosset are included in the exhibition.
