NEW PALTZ, NY.- The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz announces “Kathy Goodell: Infra-Loop, Selections 1994–2020,” a survey exhibition of the artist Kathy Goodell.

“Infra-Loop” explores Goodell’s work over the last 30 years, examining an artist who is constantly challenging and reinventing her practice.

The exhibition is on view from Feb. 6 – July 11 in The Dorsky’s Morgan Anderson Gallery and Howard Greenberg Family Gallery. It is guest curated by Andrew Woolbright.

“Infra-Loop” examines throughlines in Kathy Goodell’s practice across painting, drawing and sculpture, examining a mystic language that loops between disciplines, coasts and generations.

Associated with many movements and contemporaries, Goodell’s career charts a path and fills in the gaps of what we think about art in the ‘90s, ‘00s and the present day. Her practice has determined itself through a kind of non-specificity, one that resists easy classification and interpretation. The meaning of her work, and context through which we are to understand it, is simultaneous and withheld—west coast spiritualism meets east coast abstraction; procedural non-objectivity blends with painterly biomorphism; protean theosophy informs post-modernist contemporary.

But within Goodell’s art there is an internal ellipse: an infra-loop. Languages and ideas are continually returned to in different mediums, renegotiated and re-examined, and the themes of her work seem like dreamy recognitions of reincarnation, a removed familiarity felt between objects, drawings and paintings sometimes decades apart.

Featuring more than 40 artworks including paintings, sculptures and multimedia installations, this exhibition is the first time Goodell’s work has been presented on a large scale. In addition to exhibiting major pieces from her career, “Infra-Loop” focuses on introducing her newest work, including some that have never been exhibited before, allowing us to draw connections and see the rhythmic poetry between the past and present.

Andrew Paul Woolbright (American, b. 1986) is an artist, curator and critic based in Brooklyn, New York, and is an MFA graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design in painting. Woolbright founded and directs the gallery Super Dutchess, located on the Lower East Side in New York. In addition to curating, he writes for Momus, Two Coats of Paint, and Whitehot Magazine. In 2020, Woolbright will be curating a show based on his concept of Phantom Bodies with Yossi Milo Gallery and Vacancy Gallery in Shanghai. He has previously taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and currently teaches at SUNY New Paltz.
