Reception: Friday, JANUARY 12, 6-8PM

In an example of revisionism at its best, the kind of thing commercial galleries do better than anyone else in the canon formation business, Derek Eller brings together, on equal terms, a historic figure much loved in some quarters but massively deserving of new consideration, the sculptor William King (1925- 2015) and three emerging painters, all young women, two of whom showed recently at White Columns. Posited commonalities include soft forms, repurposed clothing, wayward supports, and satire that combines whimsy and bite. DAVID COHEN
