Project For Empty Space [at] Gateway Project Spaces is pleased to release a limited edition, 8 color Riso Poster Print in conjunction with solo exhibition, Nina Chanel Abney | If you say so... This print was created with the support of onsite partner, Endless Editions and designed by co - director Rebecca Pauline Jampol.

The print is available now for pre-sale, and for the life of the exhibition. If You Say So… is an exhibition of large scale paintings and collages created by the artist during a recent trip to Brazil and during her residency in Newark. The works are comprised of brilliantly hued geometries, alphanumeric forms, and androgynous figures. Hyperpigmented blues, blinding oranges, and curvaceous yet precise monochrome silhouettes of faces samba across the giant canvases. And yet, despite the apparent gaiety and vibrance of Abney’s works, the conceptual genesis of this collection is borne from the nefarious and widespread transnational pandemic of racial discrimination, economics, and police brutality. 

Nina Chanel Abney was born in Chicago in 1982. She received her BFA from Augustana College in 2004, and her MA from Pratt University in 2007. Abney’s works have been featured in several significant institutions and collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Nasher Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, The Brooklyn Museum, and the Rubell Collection. Nina lives in Jersey City and is represented by Kravets-Wehby gallery in New York City.
