About this item
Abbey Williams, "Untitled (white man 2)," 2021, Enamel, ash, graphite on photographic paper, 19 7/8 x 16 inches. Unframed.
Abbey Williams (b. 1971, New York, NY) lives and works in New York City, where she was born and raised. Primarily a video-artist, Williams works to address grief, race, sexuality, and the body through such familiar cinematic tropes as subtitles, credits, the intermission, the montage, and the black frame. Across media, Williams brings these subjects together through her own body, as well as the bodies inhabiting magazine pages, iconic painting and sculpture, vintage travel guides, and popular music.
Her work has been exhibited at TATE Britain, London, UK; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia; Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, Spain; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; The Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, Israel; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY. Williams was a part of the 2005 Greater New York exhibition at MoMA PS1. Solo exhibitions in New York include Foxy Production, Bellwether Gallery, Sargent’s Daughters, and in Philadelphia at the Philadelphia Art Alliance. Williams holds a BFA from the Cooper Union, an MFA from Bard College, and was a participant at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been written about in The New York Times, Hyperallergic, Flash Art, and Artforum.
