This event has ended.

Sperone Westwater presents William Wegman: Postcard Paintings, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by the celebrated American artist. The exhibition coincides with the publication of William Wegman: Paintings (Abrams, 2016), a new monograph featuring essays by Bob Elliott, Martin Filler, Amy Hempel, Robert Krulwich, and Susan Orlean. This is Wegman’s sixth solo show with the gallery.

William Wegman was born in Holyoke, Massachusetts in 1943, and received a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston and an MFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. His most recent retrospective, William Wegman: Funney/Strange, was held at the Brooklyn Museum and traveled to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Norton Museum of Art, the Addison Gallery of American Art, and Wexner Center. In 2012, The Bowdoin College Museum of Art presented William Wegman: Hello Nature, a survey of over 100 nature-related works which traveled to Artipelag, Värmdö, Stockholm, Sweden (2013). William Wegman, drawings and altered photographs from the 1970s and 1980s, and one new painting, will be on view at Magenta Plains, 94 Allen Street, from 17 March - 24 April.
