James Cohan is pleased to present Future Promise, an exhibition of new work by Alison Elizabeth Taylor, on view at 48 Walker Street from September 10 through October 23, 2021. This is Taylor’s sixth solo exhibition with James Cohan.
In Future Promise, Taylor departs from the familiar scenes of her native Southwest to reflect moments of day-to-day life around her home and studio in Brooklyn during the COVID-19 pandemic. Collectively, the works in Future Promise comprise a love letter to the resilience of a neighborhood and a community, translated through Taylor’s empathetic and incisive eye.
In 2022, Taylor will be the subject of her first major museum survey exhibition. Organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, Massachusetts, this touring exhibition will open at Des Moines Art Center in October 2022 with more than 40 career-spanning works. The show will be accompanied by a comprehensive catalog published by DelMonico Books with essays by Naomi Fry, Lynne Tillman and Allison Kemmerer.
