James Cohan is pleased to present To Light The Sky, an exhibition of new work by Jordan Nassar, on view from April 2 through May 7 at 48 Walker Street. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with James Cohan. The gallery will host an afternoon opening reception with the artist on Saturday, April 2 from 3-6 PM.
Jordan Nassar’s multivalent art practice engages with a variety of crafts to explore ideas centered on heritage and homeland. To Light The Sky showcases six new hand-embroidered multipanel works and five wall-hanging glass sculptures, each examining issues of identity, diaspora and cultural participation. Nassar employs “the landscape” as a thread throughout these two mediums, carefully mapping out patterns and often interrupting them, using fields of color to define rolling hills and expansive skies.
