This event has ended.

Curated by artist Nate Lowman, Williams' first exhibition at 303 Gallery since 2005 will be an unpredictable retrospective spanning the last 20 year of her practice, from 1990 to present day. The show will aim not to chronologically document Williams' progression, but to contextualize her work according to the formal and topical arteries Williams has consistently cut through as an artist.
Sue Williams began showing at 303 Gallery in 1990, when her paintings stirred up controversy for their frank gender politics and blunt depictions of physical and psychological upheaval. In recent years, she has slowly evolved into a content-based abstractionist, her larg-scale work infested with anthropomorphic forms and lines loosely based around suggestive political and emotional tropes. Sue Williams has recently been included in group exhibitions including " Comic Abstraction: Image Breaking, Image Making," Museum of Modern Art, New York (2007); "The Third Mind," Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; "Fast Forward: Collections for the Dallas Museum of Art," Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, Texas; "Into Me/ Out of Me,? P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City, New York; and "Still Points of the Turning World: SITE Santa Fe's Sixth International Biennial," SITE Santa Fe, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Recent solo exhibitions include the Carpenter Center at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts; IVAM, Valencia, Spain; Vienna Secession, Vienna, Austria; and Centre d'Art Contemporain, Geneva, Switzerland; among others.
