Presenting ALIX PEARLSTEIN and PEGGY FRANCK with Arcade Gallery
Stellar Projects and Arcade Gallery present new work by Alix Pearlstein and Peggy Franck. Pearlstein’s Band Aid paintings developed in the early 1990’s in response to the AIDS epidemic and the fallout of the 1980's economic bubble. Issues concerning identity and the body, through the use of everyday materials, are revisited in a new suite of works that confront the anxiety of this current time period. Franck is known for her spatial explorations of the intersection between photography, installation, and painting. For Stellar Projects, she creates a new wall installation exploring layered dimensions that question and celebrate gesture, in conjunction with a solo booth presentation at The Armory Show.
