Fine Arts Alum Lisa McCleary in First Solo Exhibition in New York City – Edging

Lisa McCleary: Edging

Gallery MC

549 West 52nd Street, 8th Floor

New York, NY

Exhibition Dates: Monday April 29th – Friday May 3rd.

Reception: Thursday May 2nd 6-9pm.

Addressing haptic sensations, McCleary’s practice is anchored by the embodiment of touch. Gallery MC, on the 8th floor of 549 West 52nd Street, will receive part of a growing collection of works in McCleary’s repertoire. The pieces, rendered on aluminum, focus on the pleasure of flesh, and the way that pleasure translates into our desire for our communication devices. With a keen eye for the mediation of corporeality, the depiction of real and abstraction, at turns, renders the body into an abject and sensuous landscape. McCleary filters this carnal depiction through a myriad of screens—queering the metaphorical body, and classifying an already detailed process through a progressive lens. Gallery MC will be transformed into a space in which desire, abjection and the digital are all at play.
