Press release

The Baldwin Gallery is proud to announce its sixth show with Peter Halley, featuring new paintings by the artist. The show is accompanied by its fourth show with artist Marc Swanson, Like a Leaf Shadow. The shows run from June 20 – July 21, 2024.

The artworks explore the nature of social spaces, how they are organized and where humanity fits in. Colored and mirrored works invite deeper reflection into brightness and shadow. The public is invited to meet the artists at the opening reception on June 20, from 6–8 pm.

Peter Halley’s work is an interplay of linear and nonlinear communication, and social and commercial relationships as they have evolved over the years. Stacked grid motifs demonstrate increasing social enmeshment, and powers that attempt to restrain it.

His work has been exhibited worldwide in museums and institutions including Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, among others. Halley received his BA in art history from Yale University, and his MFA from the University of New Orleans. He lives in New York.

Marc Swanson’s diverse multimedia works bring together formal preoccupations and references to personal history and identity conflict. The installations include sculpture, painting, drawing, and video, in a variety of materials including light, wood, glass, fabric, and metal chains.

Swanson received his MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, and lives and works in Catskill, NY. He has held solo exhibitions nationally and internationally, and his works are held in the collections of Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the National Museum of Australia, Canberra, among others.
