Exhibitions / Philippe Decrauzat: pour tout diviser.

September 13th – October 29th, 2014
Opening: Saturday, September 13th, 6-8 PM

Elizabeth Dee is pleased to present Philippe Decrauzat’s pour tout diviser., a two-sided exhibition in three acts.  Originating in Madrid, continuing in Paris and concluding here in New York, this exhibition of new architecture, paintings and film explores the limits of painting and painting’s relation to space, realized on seven newly established walls in the gallery that exhibit elements of a painting that can only be completed by the visitors movement through the gallery space.

News / Carl Ostendarp in the New York Times

“The painter Carl Ostendarp is a master of comic minimalism, an oxymoronic genre.”

Exhibitions / Carl Ostendarp: BLANKS

July 24 – September 6, 2014 | Finissage: Saturday, September 6, 6-8:00 PM

Elizabeth Dee is pleased to announce a new exhibition of recent paintings by Carl Ostendarp, his fourth solo show with the gallery. Since the late 1980’s Ostendarp paintings have generously incorporated idiosyncratic strategies such as signs, symbols and text that function in between language and typography, allowing us to experience and expansively re-reference, rather than merely footnote painting’s modernist history or, as Ostendarp has noted, “the space between ‘historical and pictorial’ languages”.

Exhibitions / Adrian Piper: The Probable Trust Registry

Elizabeth Dee proudly presents The Probable Trust Registry, a new installation and participatory group performance by Adrian Piper. Piper’s work stages an environment for the potential of collective exchange in the form of personal declarations that become part of an enduring and ongoing artwork.

For this exhibition, the main gallery is transformed into three corporate reception environments drawn from universal work culture. Each reception area is fully staffed by a volunteer administrator who helps to execute personal declaration contracts to a self-selecting public. Above each reception desk exists a different personal declaration affixed in gold to the stereotypical grey walls. These “Rules of the Game” are mirrored in the corresponding contract on the desk, each desk/contract respectively with one of the three rules:

I will always be too expensive to buy

I will always mean what I say

I will always do what I say I am going to do
