303 Gallery | 507 W 24th Street
303 Gallery is proud to present "The City Is A Garden," our first solo exhibition of new work by Kim Gordon.
Using a variety of methods to work on canvas, Gordon utilizes direct application of paints, resins, glitters and fiberglas, as well as physical manipulation of the canvas and a playful irreverence in its presentation. Paintings are crumpled, overturned and flung; battle scars from past performances become gestural abstraction. A black and white banner photo of Kim in the studio - mid-painting, mid-performance - hangs over the exhibition, dramatizing the big reveal.
Kim Gordon's work has been shown internationally including exhibitions at MoMA/ PS1, New York; White Columns, New York; and Künstlerhaus, Graz. On June 12, Gordon will stage a performance at the opening of her solo exhibition at the DESTE/ Benaki Museum in Athens. Girl in a Band, a book of Gordon's memoirs, was released in February by Dey Street Books. Is It My Body, a collection of her writings on art and performance, was published in January 2014 by Sternberg Press. A widely recorded musician, Kim Gordon is a founding member of Sonic Youth and performs as Body/Head with Bill Nace.
