Sylvia Plimack Mangold: Summer and Winter
Robert Kinmont: Want
Willie Doherty: No Return

Alexander and Bonin presents the opening of three solo exhibitions of works by Sylvia Plimack Mangold, Robert Kinmont, and Willie Doherty. Concurrent to the opening of Sylvia Plimack Mangold’s exhibition at Alexander and Bonin on May 5th will be the opening of Robert Mangold’s exhibition at PACE (510 West 25th Street) from 6 to 8pm.

In Summer and Winter, an exhibition of recent paintings, drawings, and watercolors, Sylvia Plimack Mangold explores the same viewpoints of the upper portions of trees as they change throughout the seasons. The leaves, or the sky between branches, become areas of pure paint as one analyzes how Plimack Mangold constructs her paintings, emphasizing a less pictorial view.

Want, an exhibition of new sculpture by Robert Kinmont, will be on view on the lower level of the gallery. Want will feature copper works that incorporate cursive scripts, the contents of which introduce family and domestic themes. Kinmont, a native Californian, has recurrently used modest materials to explore the relationship between the environment and his own body and life.

Willie Doherty’s No Return (2017), a single channel projection, will be installed in the video gallery. No Return was shot in a small town near Pittsburgh, in an area once known as the “cradle of Western Pennsylvanian’s steel industry,” before suffering from its collapse in the 1980s. While the work engages with the landscape as it looks today, it also approaches it as both a repository for the memories of past experiences and as witness to the ravages of socio-economic change and ecological degradation.

Mangold and Doherty will also be featured in concurrent exhibitions at 47 Canal, New York and the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, respectively. See below for further information on upcoming exhibitions by gallery artists.
