Brian Belott Gallery Art
Museum of Modern Art, New York
Over the past 20 years, Brian Belott’s practice has spanned the gamut of media, from bookmaking to performance. His work is in constant flow, led by a relentless curiosity; one that is aware of art history yet operates without the anxiety of influence. The studio is like a creative chemistry lab, where he studies the aesthetic effects of combining material absurdity and the premise of tradition. With these experiments, Belott resurrects the mannerisms of Modernism and he frees his imagination, as he purposefully relinquishes control, foregoing the trappings of orthodoxy.
Brian Belott’s work has shown at The Journal, NY, LOYAL, Malmö, Sweden, CANADA, New York, NY, and Galerie Zurcher, Paris, France. Notable exhibitions include Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York, Jeunes Créateurs à New York, Musée d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne, Saint-Etienne, France and Draw Gym, 247365, Brooklyn, NY.
