Reception: Thursday, November 8, 6 - 9 PM
Benrimon Contemporary is pleased to announce Ben Weiner’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, which will feature new paintings, videos, and sculptural objects. Engaging in a variety of media, ranging from Weiner’s signature large-scale paintings and time-lapse videos to a series of sculptural objects, SMUSH explores a process-based narrative, adapting medium specificity for the reality television era. The exhibition explores the structure of paint at a microscopic level, unveiling the organic origins of a man-made material.
