Cade Tompkins Projects is pleased to announce William Allen a new selection of work on view November 8, 2014 - January 3, 2015.
Painter, printmaker and poet, William Allen has been working in the world of words and interpretation of visual language and literal language for the past three decades. Allen brings together his wide view of the meaning of words and bright colorful paint to create signs that remind the viewer of the relationship between words and images. Bringing words to the forefront has been Allen’s longtime focus and fascination.
William Allen’s work has been included in exhibitions at PS1, Museum of Modern Art, New York; Momenta Art, New York; Williams College, Massachusetts; Newark Art Museum, New Jersey; Norton Sculpture Gardens, Florida. Recent fellowships include the Queens Council on the Arts Fellowship (2012) and a National Endowment of the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship (2009).
