July 9 – August 8, 2014 | 11 Rivington St & 195 Chrystie St, NY
Moira Dryer | Elizabeth Murray | Alan Shields
Eleven Rivington is pleased to present a special exhibition of object-like paintings, on view at 11 Rivington Street from July 9 - August 8, 2014. The exhibition is comprised of works by three artists who subverted ideas of image, object, and abstraction. This intimate presentation of three works speaks of professional and personal connections in the NY art scene in the 70s and 80s: Alan Shields (1944 - 2005) and Elizabeth Murray (1940 - 2007) both exhibited with Paula Cooper Gallery during their formative years, when they first moved to Manhattan; and Moira Dryer (1957 - 1992) was a student and assistant for Murray when Dryer moved to NY from Toronto. Dryer, Murray, and Shields devoted their individual art practices beyond the boundaries of traditional formats of painting and created idiosyncratic - and highly personal - bodies of work.
Pablo Jansana | Evan Nesbit | Letha Wilson
Eleven Rivington is pleased to present a summer exhibition with recent work by three emerging artists - Pablo Jansana, Evan Nesbit, and Letha Wilson - on view at 195 Chrystie Street from July 9 - August 8, 2014. The exhibition is comprised of mixed-media works that are linked by the idea of concealment: Jansana (Chilean, born 1976), Nesbit (American, born 1985), and Wilson (American, born 1976) create objects and paintings which deploy materials that obscure and reveal image and surface.
