Shoshana Wayne Gallery presents “Revival” by Max Colby. This is the artist’s first solo show with the gallery. An opening reception was held on April 30, 2022. The exhibition will be on view through June 4, 2022. Remember to check with the gallery for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines -(proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).
Revival highlights two mature bodies of work by the artist. Colby’s most ambitious and prominent work to date, They Consume Each Other – an installation comprised of 42 meticulously crafted sculptures atop custom glass plinths – sits majestically in the main gallery. In the second gallery, new work from 2022 titled Shrouds connects Colby’s interest in material relation to the body in disquieting ways. The title, Revival, references Colby’s interest in mundane objects, aesthetics, and excessive consumption in contemporary culture’s relationship to normative, violent systems.
Colby (born 1990, USA) lives and works in New York City. She received a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in 2012.
On view: April 30, 2022 – June 4, 2022
