Magnan Metz Gallery
521 West 26th Street
February 26 – April 9, 2011
Magnan Metz Gallery is proud to announce Two Riparian Tales of Undoing, Duke Riley’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, and first since his critically acclaimed exhibition After the Battle of Brooklyn in 2007. The show will be on view from February 26 – April 9 with an artist reception Friday, February 25th from 6-9pm.
Two Riparian Tales of Undoing chronicles the artist’s inquiries over the past year. Riley shifts his focus inland towards marginalized riverfront communities lost to obscurity. The Gallery is divided into two distinct environments: one a reconstruction of An Invitation to Lubberland, a solo exhibition at Cleveland MOCA; the other Reclaiming the Lost Kingdom of Laird an installation at the Philadelphia Historical Society for the Philagrafika Arts Festival.
