The Aldrich will stage the first East Coast museum exhibition of artist N. Dash (b. 1980). N. Dash’s work spans painting, sculpture, photography and drawing and employs both natural and manmade materials, including pigments, adobe/ mud, jute, graphite, fabric, polystyrene, and found objects. Across these materials, the artist’s inimitable approach seeks to both record sensory and informational capacities of touch and render typically unseen conduits of energy: ecological, architectural, and corporeal. The Aldrich presentation will debut a new body of paintings that exhibit persistent and new directions. The artist’s first monograph will accompany the exhibition and will include an essay by Amy Smith-Stewart, the exhibition’s curator.
