Press Release

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AMERINGER | McENERY | YOHE is pleased to announce BLACK/WHITE, a group exhibition curated by Brian Alfred. The exhibition will open on 9 July 2015 and will remain on view through 14 August 2015. Receptions for the artists will be held on 9 July and 23 July from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The public is welcome.

A diverse group of thirty artists, working in a range of mediums, are immersed in dialog through the selective lens of black and white.

The works included explore the effectiveness of this limited palette to depict light and space, mimic three- dimensionality, and allow for a greater focus on form, line, and subject.

Works rich with symbolism, metaphor, and association are juxtaposed against each other creating surprising and bold pairings. Together these works explore the constraint of black and white while visually rendering theoretical themes.

Artists presented are Nick Aguayo, Brian Alfred, Diana Al-Hadid, Kevin Appel, Matthew Chambers, Gerald Davis, Jay Davis, Richard Diebenkorn, Austin Eddy, Chie Fueki, Jackie Gendel, Luis Gispert, Jacob Hashimoto, Al Held, David Hockney, Hans Hofmann, Ridley Howard, Shay Kun, Andrew Kuo, Patrick Lee, Gina Magid, Matt Mignanelli, Joseph Montgomery, Robert Motherwell, Liz Nielsen, Carlos Rolón/Dzine, Dana Schutz, James Siena, Wendy White, and Liat Yossifor.
