New York City-based artist Nina Chanel Abney is widely-recognized for her vibrant paintings that are filled with animated cartoons and colorful geometric shapes. Abney is currently taking part in a survey exhibition at The School in Kinderhook dubbed “Travelogue.” She has created new works for the show that portray African American subjects playing with a Wilson volleyball. This series of paintings is a part of her larger body of work that comments on social attitudes and racial inequality. Accompanying Abney are other concurrent solo show by Shimon Attie, Math Bass, Valérie Blass, Vibha Galhotra, Brad Kahlhamer, Margaret Kilgallen, Lynne Lapointe, Gordon Parks, and Leslie Wayne.

In other art news, Kinfolk 90 will soon launch a collaborative exhibition entitled “Kinetic” featuring works by Meguru Yamaguchi and Yoon Hyup.
