JUDIT REIGL: NEW WORKS ON PAPER
AT ROOSTER GALLERY, 190 ORCHARD STREET, LOWER EAST SIDE, NYC
OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 6-8PM
FROM JANUARY 13 – FEBRUARY 13
Rooster Gallery Contemporary Art announces celebrated artist Judit Reigl’s “New Works on Paper,” opening on Thursday, January 13, 2011. This upcoming exhibition of the doyenne of writing-painting features works done specifically for Rooster’s space, and complements Ubu Gallery’s current exhibition of Reigl’s graphic works and paintings.
Judit Reigl (born 1923) fled Hungary in 1950 and has been working since then in Paris, where she was first championed by André Breton. Her initial surrealist aesthetic was soon replaced by an abstract style consonant with the New York School. The works being shown at Rooster Gallery represent Reigl’s return, after several decades of different approaches and perceptions, to gestural painting.
Reigl’s work is currently on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. In addition, Reigl’s works are held by Tate Modern, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo. Rooster Gallery is proud to present these new site-specific works.
