Press release:

Luhring Augustine is pleased to present new work by David Musgrave at the 2016 ADAA Art Show. Musgrave’s practice, which encompasses drawing, sculpture, painting, writing, and animation, continually mines the uncertainties of representation, expression and process. His solo presentation at The Art Show includes a drawing of a torn up sheet of paper "healed" through the process of representation, and another of a figure evoked by a fragile conjunction of illusory paper scraps and tears; a tiny but virtually indestructible stick figure apparently lifting itself from the ground; a trompe l'oeil panel of a peeling layer of grey-green paint; and an enlarged replica of a wall-crawling toy octopus, rendered transparent and frozen in its descent. They elaborate Musgrave's ongoing project to condense the mythical, the technical, the material, and the conceptual into precariously unified forms.

In addition, Musgrave will present an animation and live reading from his novel Unit at Printed Matter on Thursday, March 3, 6–8pm. The event is free and open to the public. Printed Matter is located at 231 Eleventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001.

David Musgrave lives and works in London and has recently had solo exhibitions at greengrassi, London; Marc Foxx, Los Angeles; and Luhring Augustine, New York. His work has been featured in a number of exhibitions at institutions throughout Europe and the Americas including Kunstverein Freiburg; Tate Britain, London; CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux; and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, MO. Musgrave’s work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Dallas Museum of Art; Rhode Island School of Design, Providence; and Tate, London.
