> DESCRIPTION

WATERHOUSE & DODD NEW YORK is pleased to present ROY G BIV, a group exhibition curated by Trong G. Nguyen and featuring works by Ryan Brennan, Ellen Carey, Brookhart Jonquil, Dan Levenson, Markus Linnenbrink, Robert Minervini, Christian Nguyen, Miguel Palma, Anselm Reyle, Xaviera Simmons, Pascual Sisto, Joey Syta, and Letha Wilson.

The exhibition title is a peripheral nod to the recently ratified same-sex marriage act in New York. But like the symbolic rainbow, what at first appears supernatural dissipates, betraying any inherent gestures toward narrow ethics of the "past," or anything terrestrial, for that matter. Rather, the works in ROY G BIV are concept- driven aesthetics that point to a here-and-now, occupying a space "somewhere underneath the rainbow." The selection is marked by variants of re-symbolized color, fractured orders of nature and architecture, and fictional prisms through which reality eventually makes its most sense.
