Lior Modan: LONG | TONG

@ Triumph

2055 W Cermak Rd, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Saturday, January 14th, from 5PM - 10PM

On view through Sunday, February 12th

Triumph is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, a solo presentation of new work by the artist Lior Modan. The exhibition features a group of relief paintings that settle in a constant slippage of distinct territories: abstraction and figuration, sculpture and painting, digital appearance and analog origin. These slippages are not a result of subjective expression, but rather a product of a continuous response to actual images, objects and encounters that Modan is confronted with.

LONG | TONG is the first exhibition presented at Triumph, a new project space initiated by Ryan Coffey and Ruslana Lichtzier. The estimated life span of Triumph is four months, during which it will present four exhibitions that react with necessary urgency to current events. Triumph is located at 2055 W Cermak Rd, Chicago, IL 60608. Gallery hours are Saturday–Sunday, 12–6 pm during shows, and by appointment.
