The Paula Cooper Gallery Presents an Exhibition of Works by John Chamberlain


NEW YORK, N.Y.- The Paula Cooper Gallery presents an exhibition of works by John Chamberlain, spanning four decades of this acclaimed artist’s career. The exhibition opened on March 1 and remain on view through April 2, 2011.
