Anna Kustera Gallery, in collaboration with Kravets/Wehby Gallery, has announced the opening of I DREAD TO THINK, an exhibition of new works by Nina Chanel Abney.
At Kravets/Wehby Gallery, Abney will present new small and mid-sized paintings. At Anna Kustera Gallery, Abney will debut her sixty foot long, six foot tall painting that she has been working on for the past two years. Starting with the idea of painting a post-apocalyptic scene, Abney brings together many different threads of influence. The world she paints mimics in style the rapid dissemination of ideas and images that have become so closely associated with social media and the Internet. Taking information from the glut around her, Abney draws on art history, current events and issues of race, politics, sex and gender to present a world that rejects a narrative. Instead, Abney seeks to highlight the cacophony of her contemporary world.
Nina Chanel Abney is an artist who works in New York City. Her work is currently on view at the Brooklyn Museum and at the Corcoran Museum in Washington, D.C. She was recently included in Vitamin P2 and featured in Departures Magazine. A selection of her work can be seen in the traveling exhibition "30 Americans" from the Rubell Family Collection.
