OPENING TODAY: "Jordan Casteel: Within Reach" presents nearly forty works spanning the artist's career.

In her large-scale oil paintings, Casteel has developed a distinctive figurative language permeated by the presence of her subjects, who are typically captured in larger-than-life depictions that teem with domestic details and psychological insights.
Saturday, February 29, hear from the artist as she discusses her work with Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson Artistic Director of the New Museum:

You really want me to write a post? From my heart of 7 hearts well here it comes-you asked. Can we PLEASE for our collective spirits' ascension sake begin to project visions of our future, how we see our lives unfolding, in health, wealth and joyfulness in the oneness of the ALL?
