James Fuentes LLC is pleased to announce William Stone’s forthcoming exhibition, Wares
For his latest exhibition Stone explores issues of functionality, art, and use. Stone distends, manipulates, rebuilds and builds furniture, objects and paintings, recycling both material and use, collapsing their mechanical qualities in vastly subtle, playful ways. Rendering familiar furnishings into the unfamiliar, the exhibition engages with issues of form and function. Each piece’s source material, whether raw wood, metal wire or formed plastic, affects the viewer’s choice as to its use as furnishing or its reverence as art.
William Stone has presented solo exhibitions at The Clock Tower/P.S. 1 Center for Contemporary Art, Tom Cugliani Gallery and has participated in group exhibitions at The New Museum, Deste Foundation for the Arts, The Aldrich Museum. WARES is curated by Kevin McLeod / mstrmnd.
This exhibition will be held at an annex exhibition location.
