This extensive exhibition highlights nearly five decades of Neil Jenney’s work. The show, which traces the evolution of Jenney’s career and explores persistent themes in his work, features more than twenty paintings dating from 1969 to 2016. Among the works on view are examples from Jenney’s 1969–70 series Bad Paintings—purposefully rough, gestural figurative images rendered in acrylic paint on canvas.
