About the Artist
N. Dash (b. 1980, Miami, Florida, USA) lives and works
in New York, New York, USA. The paintings, photographs, and drawings of
N. Dash convey a profound tactile sensitivity through the artist’s
manipulation of materials such as fabric, adobe, jute, polystyrene,
paper, and string. Utilizing this wide variety of media with a minute
attention to detail, Dash constructs works that engage with visible and
invisible forms of energy and movement: of bodily meridians,
architectural circulation, and environmental flux. Transmuting rough
materials such as jute, mud, and fabric scraps into meticulously
finished surfaces, Dash's work evokes the materially embodied yet
intangible presence of attentive touch.
N. Dash’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at The Aldrich
Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, USA (2019); Fondazione Giuliani,
Rome, Italy (2017); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA (2014–15); and White
Flag Projects, St. Louis, USA (2013). Group exhibitions include SFMOMA -
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, USA (2019); The Art
Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia (2017); The Jewish Museum,
New York, USA (2015); Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, Italy (2015); MAXXI,
Rome, Italy (2014); and Abron Arts Center, New York, USA (2013).
