Sonya Blesofsky Tenement Opens Thursday, May 5

April 24th, 2011

“The tenement is the basic façade in New York, the face of the slums, a slab of tombstone proportions, four to six stories, pocketed by windows. Above is the towering tin cornice, a confection of scallops and curlicues, with foliaceous brackets, often topped by a semicircular peak, a disk enclosing a rayed sun…It is the most conspicuous item in the tenement’s equipment of fictitious grandeur.” —from Low Life by Luc Sante

Mixed Greens is thrilled to announce Sonya Blesofsky’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. For Tenement, she investigates impermanence, instability, community, history, and preservation through fragile paper sculptures.
