White Columns

Gallery UPDATE

New work by: Anthony Campuzano, Carter, Jennifer Cohen, Peter Gallo, Tamar Halpern, Colter Jacobsen, Lars Laumann, Sarah Anne Lobb, Mitzi Pederson, Eileen Quinlan, John Stezaker.

White Columns is proud to present “Update” an exhibition of recent works by eleven artists who have participated in White Columns programs during the past three years.

The current “Update” exhibition was informed by White Columns’ annual “Update” exhibition series which ran for many years beginning in the mid 1980s. The original “Update” exhibitions provided an opportunity for White Columns to re-privilege and re-contextualize the work of artists who had received significant support and early exposure at the gallery. The current “Update” exhibition brings together new works – produced in the past year – by artists who showed at White Columns between 2005 and 2007. (In most cases their initial show at White Columns was their first individual or two-person exhibition in New York.)

Anthony Campuzano had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in June/July 2005.

White Columns’ introduced Carter’s work at the 2005 Armory Show. He subsequently had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition in May/June 2005.

Jennifer Cohen had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in February/March 2005.

Peter Gallo had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in May/June 2005.

Tamar Halpern had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in March/April 2007.

Colter Jacobsen made an individual installation at White Columns in October/December 2005 as a part of the exhibition ‘Open Walls’ – a series of six autonomous projects.

Lars Laumann had a solo ‘Project Room’ show at White Columns in February/March 2007.

Sarah Ann Lobb had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in September/October 2006.

Mitzi Pederson had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in June/July 2006.

Eileen Quinlan had a two-person show at White Columns with Elena Pankova in February/March 2006.

John Stezaker had a solo ‘White Room’ exhibition at White Columns in February/March 2006. (Prior to his 2006 White Room, Stezaker’s only previous exhibition in the USA was in 1981, also at White Columns.)

Over the past three years, since the arrival of current Director Matthew Higgs, White Columns has presented then work of more than 350 artists in more than 100 individual exhibitions and projects. In the future we will host “Update” exhibitions every three years.

The eleven artists in the present “Update” exhibition are currently based in Philadelphia, New York, Hyde Park (VT), San Francisco, Oslo, and London.
