From a whisper to a scream
Lehmann Maupin, 201 Chrystie Street, New York
From May 25—August 25, 2017, Lehmann Maupin will present From a whisper to a scream, a group exhibition that examines the ways artists utilize the seemingly minimal application of form, color, and line to create work infused with social, political, and cultural meaning. The artists in this exhibition all draw from the visual vocabulary of Minimalism of the 1960s in their deliberate restriction of form and exploration of physical space, but do so as a method to expose historical inaccuracies and prejudice about religion, identity, and place. Through painting, sculpture, and video, these artists transform a typically self-referential genre into one that speaks as loudly as narrative imagery.
