This event has ended.

Paul Kasmin Gallery presents a new exhibition of paintings by Deborah Kass entitled “MORE feel good paintings for feel bad times.” This will be Kass’s second show at the gallery and is on view at 293 Tenth Avenue location.

Expanding the ideas of her exhibition in the fall of 2007, Kass continues to mine the fields of post war painting, language, and music to explore the intersection of politics, popular culture, art history, and the self. Kass’s new paintings, while more circumspect, still sing. But the songs are of a more ambivalent nature, reflecting her reaction to the uncertain state of current affairs. Her vibrant texts can be read as an emotional barometer of our times.

In addition to the gallery exhibition, Kass’s paintings will be presented in “Shifting the Gaze: Painting and Feminism” at The Jewish Museum in fall 2010, “Hide/ Seek: Desire Difference and the Invention of the Modern American Portrait,” at The National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Museum, Fall 2010, “The Deconstructive Impulse” at the Neuberger Museum, January 2011, and “Seeing Gertrude Stein: Five Stories at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco and The National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Museum, Spring 2011.

Kass’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Jewish Museum, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, among others. She is a Senior Critic in the Graduate Painting Program at Yale University. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
