  • Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush

    937 views 3 months ago
    The Nasher Museum presents a short video to accompany Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush, the first solo exhibition in a museum for the Chicago-born artist. The exhibition is a 10-year survey of approximately 30 of the artist’s paintings, watercolors and collages. This video captures Abney’s creation of a large wall mural on the entrance wall of the exhibition, commissioned by the Nasher Museum. Abney, born in 1982, is at the forefront of a generation of artists that is unapologetically revitalizing narrative figurative painting, and as a skillful storyteller, she visually articulates the complex social dynamics of contemporary urban life.
