As part of the series The Artist's Eye, in which an artist who has previously shown at The Drawing Center shares her or his perspective on a current exhibition, New York-based artist Inka Essenhigh will lead a walkthrough of Jennifer Wynne Reeves: All Right for Now. (Essenhigh's stairwell installation Manhattanhenge is on view at The Drawing Center through summer 2019.) Essenhigh will be joined in the walkthrough by Matthew Weinstein. The Drawing Center's Jennifer Wynne Reeves: It's Alright for Now presents a long overdue consideration of Reeves's unique contribution to the dialogue between representation and abstraction that has preoccupied recent art. From the late 1990s until her too-early death from brain cancer in 2014, Jennifer Wynne Reeves (b. 1963, Royal Oak, MI) developed a reputation as an artist's artist, garnering an intense and loyal following especially among fellow artists who appreciated her ability to load errant scribbles and globs of crusty paint with humor, narrativity, and poignant emotional affect. Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator, with Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator.
