DESCRIPTION

Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition that brings together a diverse, and cross-generational group of thirteen artists, whose work addresses sculpture in its widest sense. Dating from the 1960s to the present, the works included are united by strong formal qualities, but also display the myriad ways in which artists fold the specific context in which their work is made into their practices, either through historical links, the inclusion of autobiographic details, or the interjection of recognizable forms.

Side by side, natural affinities begin to emerge between the artists included – from a reflection on the body such as in works by Michael Dean, Julia Phillips, and Joanna Piotrowska, which incorporate references to the figure to produce psychological resonance, to architecture in the works of Manfred Pernice and Richard Rezac. The use of common materials, the readymade, and vernacular forms also appear as a thread, uniting works by Terry Adkins, Richard Hunt, Jamie Isenstein, Jac Leirner, Eric N. Mack, K.r.m. Mooney, Kathleen Ryan, and Michael E. Smith. Together, the works demonstrate how artists deconstruct, expand, and repurpose materials to create a fuller depiction of the world around them and its complications.
