N. Dash
On view through February 16, 2020
Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, California

Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) is pleased to feature a solo exhibition of New York–based artist N. Dash. The exhibition presents new works shown for the first time, including pieces from the artist’s ongoing Commuter series, presented together with recent large-scale paintings.

Utilizing this wide variety of media and attention to minute detail, N. Dash constructs compositions that engage with visible and invisible forms of energy and movement: of bodily meridians, architectural circulation, and environmental flux. Transmuting rough materials such as jute, mud, and fabric into meticulously finished surfaces, the artist’s work evokes the materially embodied yet intangible presence of attentive touch.
