Jenny Morgan "NOW YOU SEE ME (NOW YOU DON’T)" @ Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities ,Denver

Sep 10, 2015 - Nov 05, 2015UC Denver Fulginetti Pavilion, Denver


I don't think we need to remind everyone that we really love the works of Brooklyn-based Jenny Morgan. She was the cover of our September 2014 issue and our Hyperrealism book that we put out last year as well. Big fans here. Jenny returns to Denver for new exhibition at the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Denver, in conjunction with one of her galleries, Plus Gallery.

From the press release:

Her new solo exhibition is “Now you see me (now you don’t),” presented at the beautiful Art Gallery at the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus from September 10th through November 5th. Her latest solo will feature a remarkable selection of works from the esteemed collection of Wayne F. Yakes, M.D., one of the world’s most dedicated art collectors and supporter of numerous contemporary exhibitions in Denver and elsewhere over the last decade (including the fabulous Kim Dorland show held earlier this year at the MCA Denver). Like many of Jenny’s best collectors, Dr. Yakes support has been continually steady. But the Yakes’ collection is absolutely singular in its depth, with some of the leading and most hard-hitting examples of Morgan’s output from all of her exhibitions since she turned the corner with her career upon completing advanced graduate studies at the School of Visual Arts in NY. Fulginetti Pavilion curator Simon Zalkind is one of the most respected authorities on contemporary art in the region, and also one of the most passionate when it comes to supporting contemporary artists from Colorado or who have careers centered in the state. His selection of works from Dr. Yakes collection for the exhibition will be accompanied by a full-color catalog that features a recent dialogue between Zalkind and Morgan, making it a must-have for any fans and collectors of her work.Plus Gallery lends our full support for the exhibition during our extended interim phase while considering a new physical space to properly house the program.
