Corbett vs. Dempsey, Chicago, is pleased to collaborate with David Nolan Gallery, New York, at Expo Chicago 2014.  Entitled “Grits Ain’t Groceries,” the joint booth presents a panoply of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture from each gallery’s roster and inventory, all focused on the question of facture.  The exhibition considers abstraction from the simple standpoint of the smooth and the textured.  Works with an utterly flat topography will co-mingle with those whose surfaces are rough, bumpy, striated, and otherwise uneven.

Featured artists include: Richard Artschwager, Morris Barazani, Margot Bergman, James Bishop, Sarah Canright, Steve DiBenedetto, Caroll Dunham, Hedwig Eberle, Julia Fish, Neil Gall, David Hartt, Thomas H. Kapsalis, Mel Kendrick, Martin Kippenberger, Richard Koppe, Rebecca Morris, Barry Le Va, Kenneth Nack, Jim Nutt, Albert Oehlen, Claes Oldenburg, Gabriel Orozco, Alexander Ross,  Barbara Rossi, Jackie Saccoccio, Rebecca Shore, Diane Simpson, John Sparagana, Rudolph Staffel, Al Taylor, Rosmarie Trockel, Richard Tuttle, Jorinde Voigt, Charline von Heyl, Christopher Wool, and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung.
