LONG ISLAND CITY, NY.- MoMA PS1 presents the first museum survey of paintings by American artist Maureen Gallace (b. 1960). Featuring nearly 70 works spanning the artist’s career, Maureen Gallace: Clear Day will be on view from April 9 to September 10, 2017. For more than 25 years, Maureen Gallace has painted genre scenes drawn from the American landscape and still life traditions, employing subjects such as barns and cottages, the ocean in various conditions, and flowering gardens.

Gallace’s small canvases and panels most commonly depict rural pastorals and coastlines that evoke nostalgic New England. Recalling holiday cards and vacation snapshots, Gallace’s paintings quietly disturb the reassuring sentimentality of such pictures. Often lacking doors or windows, her houses may seem locked up, or disquietingly open and vulnerable to the elements. Lush gardens and yards can be obstructed by fences, and paths lead the viewer astray; infinite vistas over the ocean are stacked and collapsed into shallow compositions. From the outset of her career, Gallace has deployed a range of abstract compositional tools to frustrate the romantic enticements of her subject matter and the painterly seductions of her surfaces, giving rise to a quietly remarkable and contemporary body of work.

Maureen Gallace has exhibited widely, including solo exhibitions at Maureen Paley, London (2016); 303 Gallery, New York (2015); La Conservera, Murcia, Spain (2011); The Art Institute of Chicago (2006); Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2004); Dallas Museum of Art (2003); and Museum Schloss-Hardenberg, Velbert, Germany (1996). She has participated in group shows including September 11 at MoMA PS1 (2011) and the Whitney Biennial (2010).

Maureen Gallace: Clear Day is organized by Peter Eleey, Chief Curator, MoMA PS1 with Margaret Aldredge Diamond, Curatorial and Exhibitions Associate, MoMA PS1.
