NEW YORK, NY.- Marianne Boesky Gallery presents an
exhibition of new work by Dutch artist Jacco Olivier. This is the artist’s third
solo show at the gallery. Fusing painting and filmmaking, Jacco Olivier
continually reworks his canvases, photographing each iteration and brushstroke,

The subject matter of Olivier’s new work represents a notable
shift, as the artist frees the films from the loose narrative framework he had
previously employed, moving away from the language of animated film and more
towards that of painting. On view through 3 April, 2929.
