HEADS

YALE MFA PAINTING/PRINTMAKING 2018 PART 1

JULY 27-AUGUST 26

 

Natalie Ball, Kenturah Davis, Danny Ginsburg, Adam Higgins, Wyatt Lasky, Alexandria Mento, Kent O’Connor, Johnathan Payne, Maya Strauss, Emma Webster and Chase Wilson

 

Next to Nothing is pleased to present Heads/Tails, an exhibition featuring the Yale MFA Painting/Printmaking graduates of 2018, divided into 2 consecutive group shows.

The exhibition series, Heads and Tails, will show throughout the months of August and September, respectively, at 181 Orchard Street

 

Heads, open July 27 through August 23, will show work by 11 artists: Natalie Ball, Kenturah Davis, Danny Ginsburg, Adam Higgins, Wyatt Lasky, Alexandria Mento, Kent

O’Connor, Johnathan Payne, Maya Strauss, Emma Webster and Chase Wilson. Ranging from painting in the most traditional sense, to sculptures and a video piece, the

exhibition itself will be an eclectic vision, as there is no overriding theme to connect the artists’ truly individual practices. A bright yellow print of women’s asses hangs in

stark contrast to a natural wooden loom containing soft black ropes. Viewed as a whole, the exhibition can be seen as reference for the latest developments where art and

academia converge. 

 

Opportunities to see the works and to be acquainted with the artists include the reception party of Heads on Friday August 3 from 7-9PM and Tails on Friday September 7

from 7-9PM.  We welcome you to join us through this period to celebrate the class of 2018 in their explorations.
