The gallery is very proud to announce a solo exhibition by Allison Schulnik at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (CT) as part of the institution’s MATRIX series. Following her solo exhibition at ZieherSmith (NY) – -which will be on view January 9 – February 22, 2014 — MATRIX 168 will feature a selection of Schulnik’s paintings, but will primarily center on the premiere of “Eager” (2013), a new stop-motion, clay animated video by the artist that has been in the making for nearly a year.
Schulnik trained under legendary animator Jules Engel, contributor to Disney classics Fantasia (1940) and Bambi (1942), and founding director of the Experimental Animation Program at California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts). Her videos directly relate to the subject matter, color palette, and techniques seen in her paintings and sculptures. With this in mind, her work will perfectly compliment the purpose of the MATRIX series, which calls into question preconceptions about art and increases understanding of its possibilities.
We congratulate Allison on another incredible solo museum exhibition.
