Upcoming Group Show---

Curated by Inna Babaeva and Gelah Penn
Lesley Heller Workspace is delighted to present object’hood, an exhibition curated by artists Inna Babaeva and Gelah Penn, July 22 - August 21, 2015. Opening reception: Wednesday, July 22, 6 – 8 PM.

Front Gallery and Workspace:  In the past few years, there has been an exciting resurgence in sculpture. The reinvigoration of the medium has simmered quietly alongside a more public interest in painting. However, the current breadth, energy and sheer number of vibrant works being made in three dimensions call out for close examination.
For object’hood, Penn and Babaeva have selected artists who mine the depths of other disciplines in order to inform and enrich their work, resulting in a kind of revitalization through contamination. Referencing painting, installation, drawing, architecture, pattern and decoration, craft, design, video, photography and material culture, these artists have constructed pieces that are extraordinarily rich pictorially, thematically and materially. These “porous” objects reside in a complex locus of their own invention and speak to each other in strong, sonorous voices—lyrical, cacophonous, playful, anxiety-ridden—that command our attention.
Artists in the exhibition:
Rachel Beach, Katie Bell, Isidro Blasco, Nicole Cherubini, Martha Clippinger, Joy Curtis, Matthew Deleget, Peter Dudek, Kate Gilmore, Don Gummer, Mike Hein, Elana Herzog, Lisa Hoke, Christopher Joy, Harry E. Leigh, Elisa Lendvay, Doreen McCarthy, Sheila Pepe, Sarah Peters, Judy Pfaff, Don Porcaro, Elise Siegel, Kirk Stoller, Daniel Wiener, Letha Wilson
