Coloring: Bill Adams, Paul Stephen Benjamin, Rutherford Chang, Anne Lindberg, Kate Shepherd

Curated by Stuart Horodner


Coloring features five artists who use color to investigate formal, phenomenological, cultural, and historical issues. Bill Adams produces prop-like objects that collapse painting and sculpture; Paul Stephen Benjamin stacks discarded video monitors that play sputtering remixes of archival footage; Rutherford Chang meditates on music and time using multiple copies of the Beatles’ 1968 White Album; Anne Lindberg installs taut accumulations of thread to create clouds of hovering color; and Kate Shepherd produces monochrome paintings with elegantly fractured surfaces.
