NASHER MUSEUM EXHIBITION: "Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush"
The Nasher Museum presents "Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush," the first solo exhibition in a museum for the Chicago-born artist. The exhibition is a 10-year survey of approximately 30 of the artist's paintings, watercolors and collages. Abney will also create a large, temporary wall drawing specifically for the museum. Abney, born in 1982, is at the forefront of a generation of artists that is unapologetically revitalizing narrative figurative painting, and as a skillful storyteller, she visually articulates the complex social dynamics of contemporary urban life.
