I DREAD TO THINK
Kravets/Wehby Gallery and Anna Kustera Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 18, 6 – 8pm
Exhibition Dates: October 18, 2012 – November 24, 2012
The Kravets/Wehby Gallery, in collaboration with Anna Kustera Gallery, is pleased to announce 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. Across the street 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 has 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 the contemporary world.
