Now and Later

March 7, 2020 – April 4, 2020

After a number of solo shows in a row, Krakow Witkin Gallery presents a tight group show, “Now and Later”, featuring five artists: Mel Bochner, Jenny Holzer, William Kentridge, Ana Tiscornia and Kara Walker. While the formal appearance of the works vary greatly, they each engage issues of memory and reflection. What can be learned from past mistakes and successes, what is actually remembered and how can the answers to these questions move forth with better understandings.
