56 HENRY is pleased to present Notebook, an exhibition curated by Joanne Greenbaum. Comprised of over 70 works, ranging from lists and diagrams, to small drawings and torn out sketchbook pages, Notebook showcases an index of items culled from artists’ processes. The installation of works will be on display from February 9th through March 31st, 2019. Notebook is 56 HENRY’s first group exhibition, and second collaboration with Joanne Greenbaum.

By prompting artists to submit one “notebook drawing,” or work that they, “would never show to a dealer or pull out during a studio visit,” Greenbaum has created a unique context for works that were not meant to surface from the studio; Here, artists’ forgotten pages, afterthoughts, and sentimental treasures are put on display. The resulting collection offers a glimpse into the messy, candid, scrappy, witty, and seductive range of thought that is accumulated in the process of making.

Joanne Greenbaum is an artist based in New York City. Over the past twenty years, her work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, both in the United States and abroad. Most recently, Tufts University Art Galleries at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA mounted Joanne Greenbaum: Things We Said Today, a comprehensive solo exhibition that travelled to the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA. Greenbaum’s upcoming exhibitions include solo presentations at Richard Telles, Los Angeles, CA in April 2019 and at Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York, NY in November 2019. Greenbaum is represented by Rachel Uffner in New York.
