CURATED BY KAWS
FEB 27 - APR 3
KAWS will curate Sam Friedman's upcoming show "Light" at Detroit’s Library Street Collective. The new space on 1274 Library Street will host its first exhibition. The New York-based contemporary artist Sam Friedman explores nature as he draws inspiration from observations of naturalistic elements in his hometown of upstate New York while paying homage to the Abstract Expressionist painters that came before him.
“The sentient paintings within the exhibition draw from earlier works that distill natural phenomena (sunset, sunrise, rainfall) down to their most essential elements of line and color. Like the New York Abstract Expressionists of the 1950s, he explores abstraction in order to touch on concepts that are more existential in nature – life and death, love, spirituality, and a range of universal human emotions that allow the viewer to manifest their own pure and innate response,” said the gallery in a statement.
“Light” will run from February 27 until April 3 at the address below. Visit Library Street Collective’s website to learn more.
