Gallery Ceysson presents six artists: Louis Cane, Mike Cloud, Sadie Laska, Kayode Ojo, Clade Viallat, and Rachel Eulena Williams.

Two of these artists – Louis Cane and Claude Viallat – were founding members of Supports/Surfaces, a group of French painters that worked to lay bare the process and structure of painting in the wake of the May 1968 protests in Paris. The four remaining artists – Mike Cloud, Sadie Laska, Kayode Ojo, and Rachel Eulena Williams – represent a younger generation working in New York who belong to no particular school of thought, but share a concern for deconstructing the traditional foundations of painting. Inflatable Tear works to establish a dialogue between these two generations of artists, but rather than posit a stylistic genealogy, the exhibition aims to highlight the continued relevance of painterly strategies presaged by members of Supports/Surfaces.
