Press Release

Press Release

James Cohan is pleased to present STEPS, an exhibition of new work by Grace Weaver, on view from July 15 through September 12 at 48 Walker St and 291 Grand St. The exhibition will span both of the gallery’s locations, with a body of new paintings in Tribeca and a selection of the artist’s drawings in the Lower East Side. This is Weaver’s second solo exhibition at James Cohan. Both exhibitions are accessible by contactless appointment only.

In her striking portrayals of the tragicomic everyday, Grace Weaver examines the charged social and cultural conditions that underlie self-concept, intimacy, and individual experience. Depicting elastic-limbed figures that collide on street-corners and tumble down steps, Weaver’s new paintings turn an incisive yet empathetic eye onto the self-conscious performativity and precarious footing of her contemporaries. In her work, the body itself becomes scenario: playful, sweeping lines and dense planes of luminous color act as linguistic elements, each directing its own physical weight and affect onto her female subjects. 

 

Brooklyn-based curator Susan Thompson has written an essay, "Grace Weaver: The Theater of Public Life," to accompany the exhibition. The full text is available for download here.
