Páramo is pleased to present the group exhibition PaintersNYC.
The premise of PaintersNYC is to look at the general shifts and styles currently found in New York based paintings while also referencing and examining its historical roots. The painters in this exhibition are a newer generation of established and emerging artists and in many ways are part of a larger community of artists based in New York that often relate with issues of space, politics and culture. Simultaneously, in the projec- tion room at the gallery, we will show a series of films and videos of New York based painters.
The artists participating in the exhibition are: Joshua Abelow, Trudy Ben- son, Todd Bienvenu, Maureen Cavanaugh, Holy Coulis, Inka Essenhigh, Clare Grill, Halsey Hathaway, Loie Hollowell, Eamon Ore-Giron, Veron- ika Pausova, Ezra Tessler and Anke Weyer.
Afterwards, the exhibition will travel to El Museo de los Pintores Oaxaqueños (MUPO) in Oaxaca, from March 11 to May 15, 2016.
The exhibition was organized by Páramo Director, Meaghan Kent, and artist Maureen Cavanaugh.

Exhibitions include: Sister Garage Project, Los Angeles, California; “Dead in August on the LILAC” Site95; “Everything Must Go,” Casey Kaplan, New York; “Talk Show”, Edward Thorp and “Contemporary Painting,” Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine (curated by Alex Katz).
