Michael Assiff
NADA NY, booth 2.16
March 2 – 5, 2017

For the 2017 edition of NADA New York, Motel is pleased to announce a presentation by Michael Assiff.

Through an array of media, Assiff addresses a palpable inflation of injustices - committed against humans, animals and ecologies – in the wake of a both personally and collectively traumatic 2016.

Assiff’s works transfigure physical objects and representational motifs into detailed examinations of social, political and personal responsibilities. His presentation historicizes the occurrences of a single year in a series of objects and interventions; physicalizing their complex and amorphous character.

Alongside these sculptures and reliefs, Assiff will present a selection of works by fellow artists Frankie Friday, Joe Girandola, Harry Gould Harvey and Romolo Simonetti. This selection will rotate over the course of the fair in hopes of presenting a breadth of perspectives and access points amidst this caustic historical moment.

Michael Assiff (b. 1983) received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. Recent exhibitions include:Under all this dirt the floor is really very clean, Motel, Brooklyn; Remediation Flowers, First Continent, Maryland; Future Nature, Jack Hanley, New York; Reconstructive Memory, Valentin, Paris; Efficient Frontier, Magenta Planes, New York; Tiger Tiger, Salon 94, New York, and Hangry, Shoot the Lobster, New York.
