Miles McEnery Gallery presents exhibitions by a multigenerational roster of artists whose works are linked by their drive to discover the points at which the paths of pleasure and knowledge cross. Sometimes that happens organically: minds and bodies working in concert as insight and enjoyment dovetail gracefully. At other times it’s awkward. And unsettling. And consequential. Conflict enters the picture when what you feel and what you know tug you in different directions. That tension creates experiences that compel you to reorganize your relationship to the world—starting with your self, which is, hopefully, a fairly complex constellation of experiences and imaginings, facts and fantasies, realities and relationships. The art exhibited at McEnery highlights the multilayered nature of identity, not to mention history and humanity. It also leaves people free to experience things for themselves. And once that individual experience has begun, it invites you to determine what that experience means for you, but not just to you alone. Freedom and responsibility—or independence and interconnectedness with others—take shape before works that do not strive to provide answers to life’s big questions so much as to draw visitors into conversations with themselves, with their friends, and with strangers. Both internal and external, these dialogues can be insightful, and they can also be infuriating. They are often both. At their best, they sharpen perceptions, excite the imagination, stimulate thinking, and change behavior by making us aware of realities previously unseen. Prescriptive art is nowhere to be found. Nor are one-dimensional works, single-issue statements, or academic rehashes of ideas that have been thoroughly worked through by previous generations. Painting and drawing predominate. This is not because these media are historically important or intrinsically valuable, but because they are basic: simple technologies that record, often in exceptionally nuanced ways, the gestures and maneuvers of a consciousness in action (making decisions, adapting to circumstances, working through rough spots, and coming to conclusions—only to start all over again in the next painting or drawing). The drama—of striving to do something and then striving to do more—opens up all sorts of stories. Each story has lots to say about all sorts of situations, artistic and otherwise. Often both. Both abstract and representational, the works at McEnery invite viewers into worlds within worlds. Familiar details give way to strangeness. What you thought you knew turns out to be different from what you actually know. Strangest of all, your journeys through the overlapping, intersecting worlds in these works do not take you away from the real world so much as they take you more deeply into it—more attentive to subtle differences and inspired to share such discoveries with others.

Why I Make Art



July 28, 2022 - August 26, 2022
DIANA AL-HADID, BRIAN ALFRED, TRUDY BENSON, INKA ESSENHIGH, ANDREW KUO, GEOFF MCFETRIDGE, LIZ NIELSEN, MARGAUX OGDEN, CARL OSTENDARP, JAMES SIENA, JASON STOPA, and ANNE VIEUX. Miles McEnery Gallery is pleased to announce Why I Make Art, a group exhibition derived from the recent publication by Brooklyn-based artist, Brian Alfred. Gathered from the archives of “Sound & Vision,” a podcast directed by Alfred, the book presents interviews with artists conducted between 2016 and 2020. Both the publication and the exhibition explore the practices and life stories of artists across multiple mediums. The exhibition opens on 28 July 2022 at 511 West 22nd Street and will remain on view through 26 August 2022. “There are certain themes that recur for many of the artists I’ve spoken with in my time. For a lot of them, creativity entered their lives early. It often scratches an itch–boredom, loneliness, a desire to connect or entertain, to find validation or a feeling of worth–that children can have difficulty articulating with words. A lot of the time this instinct to create, visually, materially, is only understood in retrospect. This book is full of written portraits of artists. It’s not about one thing in particular–theory or studio practice or their inspiration. It’s about them as people in the world. An artist myself, I wanted to approach this compendium of portraits as an exploration, rather than a place to make definitive statements about the art being made today. In the moment, when I’m speaking with an artist, the conversations fly by. Going back over the talks has been like watching a complicated movie for a second time; I’ve seen things more fully, with deeper context and richer understanding. It’s also allowed me to slow down, reconsider, and ponder what’s being said. I hope this book does the same for you.” - Brian Alfred

Beverly Fishman

Beverly Fishman: I Dream of Sleep



September 10, 2020 - October 10, 2020
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – MILES McENERY GALLERY is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture by Beverly Fishman. I Dream of Sleep will open 10 September at 525 West 22nd Street and remain on view through 10 October 2020. The show is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication featuring an essay by Amy Rahn. Since the early 1980s, Beverly Fishman has developed a distinctive body of hard-edge, dimensional, abstract paintings that are infused with emotion. While her works have been compared to those of Finish Fetish artists like John McCracken and Robert Irwin, as well as those of Peter Halley, she affirms that her practice deviates from a direct dialogue with (implicitly male) hard-edged abstraction. Fishman’s works are instead grounded in a “messier lineage of paintings and sculpture that occupy an interchangeable space between form and feeling - that channel loss and joy, contemplation and analysis along the lines of color.” Shape and color are united with questions of identity. The paintings in I Dream of Sleep are based on the slick, angular packaging of the pharmaceutical industry. They suggest the sleek corporate marketing and the fluorescent language of caution, even emergency. Each one contaminates the spaces of art and pharmaceuticals, speaking of the rage of loss in the language of corporate cure. Instilled with the standardized shapes of mass-produced medications, Fishman’s works deliver what looks like an opaque, machine high-gloss nish that, paradoxically, is meticulously handmade. Fishman appropriates familiar and addictive pill forms, drawing both the philosophies and the physical manifestations of pharmaceuticals into conversation with their intensely felt human repercussions. As an artist who came of age in New York during the AIDS crisis and having cared for multiple ailing family members, Fishman’s life experiences have been marked by the medicalization of the people she has loved. Deeply personal, the selection of works on view are partially motivated by her sister Judy’s passing in December 2018 after a month-long stay at a New Jersey hospital. BEVERLY FISHMAN (b. 1955, Philadelphia, PA) received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1977 from Philadelphia College of Art and her Master of Fine Arts degree in 1980 from Yale University. Recent solo exhibitions include “I Dream of Sleep,” Miles McEnery Gallery, New York, NY; “Untitled Monotypes,” Louis Buhl & Co., Detroit, MI; “Fantastic Voyage, 1985-1987,” Library Street Collective, Detroit, MI; “Future Perfect,” Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago, IL; Ronchini Gallery, London, United Kingdom; “Synthetic Wonderland,” Gavlak Gallery, Palm Beach, FL; Miles McEnery Gallery, New York, NY; “Chemical Sublime,” Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago, IL; “T.

Daniel Rich: Back to the Future



September 10, 2020 - October 10, 2020
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – MILES MCENERY GALLERY is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Daniel Rich. Back to the Future will open on 10 September at 520 West 21st Street and remain on view until 10 October 2020. Back to the Future is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication featuring essays by Emily McDermott and Ara H. Merjian. Daniel Rich’s reticulated cityscapes and slick façades appear at first glance to be quite literally superficial. Whether it is a geometric exterior pressed close to the picture plane or a cluster of multiple structures glimpsed from a distance, we experience architecture in his painting as a wholly exteriorized phenomenon— looming close up or made smaller through a bird’s-eye view. His process-oriented paintings offer windows to different parts of the world— some figuratively, others much more literally—and can evoke a distorted experience of temporality for the viewer. Like compositions by Bernd and Hilla Becher or Andreas Gursky, Rich’s artworks offer clinical, complex architectural views onto the world that are filled with subtleties. However, Rich differs from Becher or Gursky in his painstaking, intricate process of translating found images into painting. The works also evoke early 20th century European Modernism, recalling Giorgio de Chirico’s metaphysical cityscapes and Germany’s Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) artists of the 1920s and 1930s. Architecture, as it is commonly understood, is designed and implemented to house the human and is itself the manifestation of our constructed realities. When all signs of life are missing from buildings and spaces, as in Rich’s paintings, the result is an unsettling subversion that upends and questions what we have come to expect of both architectural spaces and the organized linearity of time. Rich probes viewers to consider what lies beyond the surface. Rich also uses his anonymous architectural imagery to talk about history and politics. He speaks of his scenes as “failed utopias” and “changing political power structures.” In their seeming permanence, the fixed and rigid edifices that populate his work speak to a late capitalist urbanism that sees its monuments not as contingent, but as immovable and eternal. DANIEL RICH (b. 1977 in Ulm, Germany) received his Bachelor of Fine Art degree in 2001 at the Atlanta College of Art in Atlanta, GA.
