M WOODS Museum proudly presents Nice Dog, the most comprehensive survey of the paintings of Florian Krewer to date and the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Asia. The exhibition, curated by Matthew Higgs, is a collaboration with the Aspen Art Museum, which showed the artist's first institutional solo exhibition in the United States earlier this year.
Hurvin Anderson first painted a Birmingham-based barbershop in 2006. Over the last 15 years, Anderson has repeatedly reworked the same barbershop in a multitude of ways to explore key painting styles, shifting from figuration to abstraction, and experimenting with the classic genres of still life, landscape and portraiture. The Salon Paintings exhibition focuses on the Barbershop series as a lens through which to understand Anderson’s wider practice and key concerns of memory, identity and nationhood.
Perhaps the Truth features work by Florian Krewer and Issy Wood, among others. The works in the exhibition suggest that the truth is not a fixed or absolute concept, but rather something that is shaped by experiences and shifting perceptions. Perhaps the Truth is inspired by the writings of Wallace Stevens (1879–1955) and the late painter and poet Jesse Murry (1948–1993).
