Nancy Brett’s first solo show in New York in a decade, Over and Under :: Painting and Weaving, will feature new paintings and weavings and will open at 213 Bowery on February 15, 2020. Curated by McArthur Binion, well-known painter and long-time friend of the artist, and Anna Stothart, Curatorial Director at Lehmann Maupin, the exhibition will explore Brett’s use of the an- cient tradition of weaving as both structure and metaphor in her work. The warp and weft of weaving is, in essence, a minimalist grid, which for Brett provides the basis of all of her mark making―woven, drawn, painted―and is the formal language within which she explores varia- tions in line and color. The show will be on view through March 8, 2020.
