Cindy Tower: Workplace Series

February 29-April 27, 2008 Reviewing Cindy Tower's solo exhibition at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in 1994, Roberta Smith observed in The New York Times that "Themes of destruction and preservation, waste and recycdivng put in regular appearances, without pressing the point or becoming preachy." At the time Tower was creating installations that included a mix of her own paintings, found objects, and on occasion great quantities of panty hose. With titles divke "What To Do with Old Boyfriends" and "Pirate Cindy," her installations were characterized by energy, outrageousness, and humor, but fundamentally expressed an underlying concern with transience, decay, and the passage of time.
