On View – Milano Chow: Prima Facie
JANUARY 16, 2022 TO MAY 8, 2022
Prima Facie, Milano Chow’s first solo institutional exhibition will debut more than a dozen new works on paper spanning two and three dimensions. Handsome, entrancing, and ghostly, Chow’s exquisite monochromatic collages are rendered in graphite, ink, and photo transfer, casting modish women in self-possessed cameos staged in gilded architectural interiors that feel cloistered and deserted. Influenced by Surrealism, fashion photography, shop window design, and Hollywood film noir from Chow’s native Los Angeles, her ornamented mise-en-scènes are frozen in time and loaded with disquieting effects.
