Curated by João Ribas
June 14 ? July 12, 2008
The Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to present Standard Sizes, a group exhibition curated by João Ribas.
Standard Sizes surveys a diverse group of artists over several generations whose work resists the notion of art as the product of an expressive subject?the radically individuated self largely equated with the figure of the artist. In place of this vestige of Renaissance self-fashioning and the affectations of Romanticism, the exhibition presents works that look to standards and formal procedures to displace the idea of expressive subjectivity as the domain of art.Artists included in this exhibition: Ricci Albenda, Kjell Bjørgeengen, Kerstin Brätsch, Martin Creed, Liz Deschenes, Morgan Fischer, Rachel Harrison, Imi Knoebel, Camilla Low, Allan McCollum, Brian O'Connell, Blinky Palermo, Richard Pettibone, Josh Smith, Matt Sheridan Smith, and Sturtevant.
