Since the traditional gift for the first anniversary is paper, Moti Hasson Gallery will present a group exhibition of works on paper by Gallery artists LIHI CHEN, ZIPORA FRIED, JACKIE GENDEL, DAVID KRAMER, PAUL PAGK, SHINIQUE SMITH, and guest artists DERRICK ADAMS, URI ARAN, DAVID ARMSTRONG SIX, MARK BARROW, MONICA COOK, WILLIAM DOWNS, KELTIE FERRIS, DANA FRANKFORT, LUIS GISPERT, PABLO HELGUERA, JON KESSLER, DAN KOPP, YASUE MAETAKE, TOM McGRATH, ANDY MOON-WILSON, JENNIFER MURPHY, RUNE OLSEN, RAYMOND PETTIBON, SABEEN RAJA, MARC ANDRE ROBINSON, CARLOS ROQUE, and DEREK SULLIVAN. For many of the artists in the exhibition who work in a variety of media, UNTITLED (ON PAPER) showcases a sometimes less known, if related and no less consequential aspect of their practice. For others, paper serves as a primary source and subject matter for their work. Informed by conceptual practices that are ephemera (i.e. books, posters, multiples) and distribution based, their contributions expand what “inscription on the page” can mean for artists today. Ultimately, the exhibition features artists who have created works that incorporate paper, but that are not limited to drawings. In so doing, UNTITLED (ON PAPER) extends the idea of paper as both subject and material, as well as referencing the larger impact of how paper circulates through mainstream media, and how its presentation in other formats like literature, poetry, graffiti, graphic design, and criticism affect artists and their work in both form and content.
