Nina Chanel Abney’s ‘LIE DOGGO’ at Jack Shainman Gallery’s The School in Kinderhook, New York, features new paintings, collages, site-specific murals, an immersive digital installation, and debut large-scale sculptures. Abney’s work bridges historical art movements with contemporary issues, drawing on the influences of Matisse, Picasso, Léger, and Harlem Renaissance artists.

The exhibition title, ‘LIE DOGGO,’ reflects themes of strategic invisibility and the tension between observation and action. Abney’s complex works delve into global dynamics, imperialism, and systemic inequalities, inviting viewers to examine the space between spoken and unspoken narratives. Her murals and sculptures use cultural signals and gestures to communicate identity and solidarity, while her digital installation critiques virtual identity constructions and societal values.

Through vivid acrylics and thought-provoking compositions, Abney challenges viewers to decode messages about resilience, resistance, and social cohesion. ‘LIE DOGGO’ positions art as both a veil and a window, urging a deeper consideration of the unseen forces shaping our world.

Nina Chanel Abney’s ‘LIE DOGGO’ runs from May 18 to October 5.
