Follow the Physical: from the Paper File
July 23- August 27, 2011
Saturday July 23, 5-8 pm
Gallery KM is pleased to present FOLLOW THE PHYSICAL: from the Paper File, a group show of works on paper featuring Alika Cooper, Nathan Danilowicz, Jill Daves, Michael Dopp, Jonathan Ehrenberg, Laura Kim, David Lloyd, Frank Ryan, Ronald Santos, Alexandra Wiesenfeld, and Daniel Wiesenfeld. There will be a reception for the artists held at the gallery on Saturday, July 23, from 5-8pm.
FOLLOW THE PHYSICAL explores the immediacy and materiality of paper, and its potency as a medium whose associations with process can provide increased freedom from the usual demands and restrictions of the formal presentational object.
The artists included in the exhibition range from those for whom paper is a consistent or even primary medium in their practice, to those for whom it is an unfamiliar language requiring translation from their habitual forms of expression. The pieces in the show reflect this range, offering a breadth of styles, presentations, and conceptual frameworks within the confines of a piece of paper.
Artists in the show live and work in Los Angeles, New York, and Berlin. They have studied, exhibited and taught across the United States and Europe, and their work has been featured in publications such as The New Yorker, Art in America, Time Out London, Artforum, and many others.
