Buffalo, NY – New Works in Black & White showcases the freshest work by artists from Buffalo, Toronto, Washington D.C., and Brooklyn. Each piece has been created within the past six months by artists who either work primarily in black and white or hardly, if ever, stray from color. This exhibition explores the potentially viewable difference between artists working within and outside of their comfort zones.
This concept was inspired by the groundbreaking exhibition New Forms - New Media put on the Martha Jackson Gallery in 1960 – specifically illustrated by the lines from the catalog, “Nearly each piece was created in the past two years,” and, “[a focus on] diversity and originality of the individual pieces.” New Works in Black & White features painting, film, sculpture, installation, photography, and printmaking.
