The new series Gatherings, along with selections from Paper Trails, Erasings, and C, will be exhibited at the Art on Paper 2022 in NYC.
40 years ago, in 1978, Abreaction Theater presented the first of two productions I wrote and directed and my collaboration with the actors, musicians, and technicians who worked with me represented a highlight of my early work. Returning to New York with this exhibition, I hope those of you who are in the area will join me on the 8th.
Opening Evening Thursday, September 8 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Open to the public: Friday, September 9: 11am - 7pm Saturday, September 10: 11am - 7pm Sunday, September 11: 11am - 6pm
Tickets: Art On Paper 2022
I dislike crowds. They make me uncomfortable. Especially groups of people congregating around a single idea or ideology. They are the Cossacks that terrorized my ancestors and who terrorize us now. This series shows only the gathering. What threatens them is rarely real but it is they who haunt my dreams. David Bailin, Artist Statement
In a period of art that values reproducibility, speed, and spectacle, these seven artists find a common ground and belief in the unique, the contemplative, and the inventive use of their materials. Peter Frank, catalog essay
