NEW YORK, NY.- The Paula Cooper Gallery presents Red Yellow Blue, an exhibition of new works by Sherrie Levine. The exhibition opened to the public on April 17 and remain on view through May 23, 2014, at 534 West 21st Street.

The title Red Yellow Blue is taken from Aleksander Rodchenkoʼs three panel monochrome of 1921, Pure Red Color, Pure Yellow Color, Pure Blue Color, a work he exhibited in a Constructivist exhibition in Moscow and about which he later declared, “I reduced painting to its logical conclusion… itʼs all over.”

The question of an endgame, so central to any account of modernism, is raised anew in Levineʼs exhibition, which extends her investigation into the movementʼs foundational myths and repressed memories. The works on view include two bronze sculptures, Tight Coffin (modeled after a childʼs antique coffin) and Bird Mask (based on a mask from Papua New Guinea) as well as sets of red, yellow and blue mirror works. These material reenactments both conjure up and deflect art historical precedents, with allusions to primitivism, Constructivism and the still life genre. Together they explore the conflation of eroticism and death, a tension that has shaped major intellectual and philosophical currents of modernity.

Sherrie Levine was born in Hazelton, Pennsylvania, grew up in St. Louis and moved to New York in 1975. Her work has been the subject of many one-person exhibitions, including at the ICA, London (1983); the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C. (1988); the High Museum of Art, Atlanta (1988); the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco (1991); the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia (1992); Portikus, Frankfurt (1994); Museum Haus Lange, Kunstmuseen Krefeld, Krefeld, Germany (2010); the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2011-12); and the Portland Art Museum, Portland, OR (2013). Her work is currently on view at the Whitney Museum as part of the 2014 Whitney Biennial (through May 25). She lives and works in New York and Santa Fe, NM.
