Press Release

James Cohan is pleased to present We send the wave to find the wave, an exhibition of work by Spencer Finch, on view at the gallery’s 52 Walker Street location from September 10 through October 8. This is Finch’s fourth solo exhibition with James Cohan. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, September 10 from 2 - 6 PM. 


Continuing his unique observations of the natural world, and exploring ways of seeing both objective and subjective, Spencer Finch's upcoming exhibition will feature new works on paper, paintings and two major installations. As described by the artist, "Sometimes I am just trying to see clearly, even though I know that is impossible. Other times, I am trying to not see clearly, hoping it gives insight into that very impossibility. This second type of seeing, which requires a separation of perception from cognition, embraces the weird and wonderful empirical richness of the world."
