The end is nigh… of 2021.
2021: A year of expansion, contraction, and expansion yet again. Hope, disappointment, mayhem, growth, love, heartbreak, health, death, and new life all coexisting in a vast and unpredictable present. Uncertainty and anxiety continue to be at the forefront of our personal collective experience, though they have slowly been whittled away by the hope that the tide of the pandemic is beginning to recede.
We continue to be hopeful that the opportunity to rethink our values and reorganize as a society will not be lost as we move through such a traumatic collective experience, and we hope that in 2022 we will see the fruits of this opportunity blossom. From all of us at Ethan Cohen Gallery, we wish you a wonderful period of growth and reflection, and a happy New Year.
Ethan Cohen Gallery is pleased to present its final group show of the year, co-curated by Lara Kamhi and Ethan Cohen, which focuses on artists who challenge the status quo and bring new ideas into the dialogue of our society. This is an exhibition and an open dialogue, with the artists questioning our societal norms in the hope of being part of the conversation on how we move forward in a post-pandemic future. We hope you enjoy The Last Word, featuring works by:
Jeffrey Spencer Hargrave
Joan Lebold Cohen
Lara Birgit Kamhi
Raul De Lara
