James Cohan is pleased to present 11 Women, an exhibition of new paintings by Grace Weaver, on view from November 18 through December 18, 2021 at the gallery’s 52 Walker Street location. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artist on Thursday, November 18 from 6-8 PM. Masks and proof of vaccination are required for entry.
For her third exhibition at James Cohan, Weaver has created eleven paintings of monumentally-scaled women. Expressively executed in thick oil paint, the figures are arrested mid-stride as they navigate the hazards of city streets, their dynamic limbs rendered in pink against asphalt grounds. At once heroic and awkward, sturdy yet precarious, brutal but tender, her subjects contend with what it is to be a woman moving through—and taking up—space.
