Group exhibition

March 5 - March 28, 2009


Recent paintings by Nina Mushinsky and photographs of graffiti crosses in Beirut dating back to the Lebanese civil war by A. H. The group exhibition includes painting by Jean-Paul Decroix, sculpture by Carol Ross, objects by Andra Ursuta, and video by Alexandra Lerman.

Nina Mushinsky's paintings impose a sense of displacement much like the scenes created by the great Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi, and offer a similar reward. Mushinsky works along the edges of reality by using both modern technology-photography-and traditional painting; her unearthly grisaille is situated between these two media. Mushinsky's paintings address such issues as appropriation of existing images, hybridization, and the mixing of genres, and so is A.H.'s documentation of competing Christian militia graffiti, in which the tagging of abandoned (and now no longer existing) buildings and streets is reinforced by actual firepower.
