“Stand Still Like a Hummingbird” exhibition at David Zwirner Gallery, New York

Stand still like a hummingbird curated by Bellatrix Hubert uses Henry Miller‘s short stories as the starting point to explore the conflicts of modern life. Works by Tomma Abts, Gordon Matta-Clark, Ed Ruscha and others play with humor, absurdity through both formal and thematic content. Mason Williams large scale graphic silkscreen Greyhound bus works especially well with the abstract works in the show such as Cady Noland‘s metal fence and supports the ongoing dialogue of contradictions. 

On view through August 3rd, at David Zwirner, 525 West 19th Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
