Catharine Clark Gallery opens its Spring 2019 program with “Won, Too, Free, For,” the gallery’s debut solo exhibition with Lenka Clayton. Following Clayton’s acclaimed presentation at UNTITLED, Art San Francisco in January 2019, the gallery presents an immersive exhibition of sculptures, typewriter drawings, photographs, and videos that engage with everyday materials and situations, extending the familiar into realms of the poetic, the absurd, and the profound. Clayton’s “Typewriter Drawings” – illustrated works on paper entirely rendered with a portable 1957 Smith-Corona Skyriter typewriter – line the gallery’s walls in thematic groupings such as “Art World Drawings,” “Important Documents,” and “Pots.” Though playful and often humorous, Clayton’s drawings also reflect an extraordinary facility with rendering, driven by a restless and incisive inquisitiveness about how we collectively document and catalogue the world around us.
“Won, Too, Free, For” opens with a reception on Saturday, April 6 from 3 – 5pm, with an artist talk and conversation at 4pm with
Clayton and Veronica Roberts, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin.
Thursday, April 4 from 6 – 8pm:
