Featuring works by

Josef Albers, Robert Barry, Michael Beatty

Liliana Porter, Stephen Prina, Kate Shepherd

Richard Smith, and Ana Tiscornia

Barbara Krakow Gallery proudly presents “Block Parts”, a group show featuring the work of 11 artists made over the past 50 years..  Curated as an aesthetically cohesive experience, the show provides myriad opportunities to explore themes of repetition, familiarity, memory, history and the viewer/subject relationship both within and between works.  The individual pieces have as consistent a dedication to specificity of material as they do to more subjective themes, and yet no work looks older or newer than another, which speaks to the timelessness of both the works and the issues investigated therein.
