A pioneer in the development of New Realism during the 1960s and 1970s, Laderman rejected the prevailing abstract expressionist conventions in favor of a perceptual approach that combined diverse historical sources with a disciplined structural vocabulary. The public is invited to attend an Opening Reception Friday, January 23, from 4-6 pm.

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 recycling 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 like "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.
