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.
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”.
The exhibition was recently included in Art Forum’s Critic’s Picks. Read the review here. Everything falls faster than an anvil is on view through June 18.
Reto Thüring; with contributions by Johanna Burton, Quinn Latimer and Julia Wachtel. For more information please visit the Yale University Press website. Above: WTF!, 2014.
Elizabeth Dee is participating in Frieze New York 2014, on Randall’s Island, May 8-12. The gallery is exhibiting a special joint presentation with Broadway 1602, highlighting multigenerational female artists from both programs. Gallery highlights from the fair include:
Frieze director Amanda Sharp mentioning our joint presentation as one of her highlights of the fair.
Artsy Editorial including the joint presentation in their round up of Female Artists [that] Pack a Punch at Frieze NY 2014.
Julia Wachtel’s Two Plus Three included in Complex’s 50 Must-See Pieces at Frieze New York 2014.
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
