"I Won't Grow Up"
June 26 – August 29, 2008

Cheim & Read is pleased to announce I WON'T GROW UP, curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody and Donald Baechler. The exhibition will present works in various media by a variety of artists that embrace a child-like sensibility. These artists, gaining inspiration from childhood, incorporate compositional elements which are evocative of the creative freedom and wonderment of younger years. The result is a work that is both nostalgic and refreshing, embodying an abandonment of adulthood for the endless play of Peter Pan.

"The artist, like the child, is passive. The artist remains a child who is no longer innocent yet cannot liberate himself from the unconscious. The acting out of his terror is self-involved and pleasurable. Some artists act all their lives instead of thinking." -Louise Bourgeois

The exhibition will include works by Donald Baechler, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Brian Belott, Louise Bourgeois, Jared Buckheister, Brendan Cass, E.V. Day, Phillip Estlund, Mark Fox, Beka Goedde, Gary Hume, Chantal Joffe, Chapman Brothers, Jonathan Hammer, Mike Kelley, Misaki Kawai, Jeff Koons, Tim Liddy, McDermott & McGough, Ryan McGinley, Paul Morrison, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Djordje Ozbolt, Kembra Pfahler, George Stoll, Angela Strassheim, Andy Warhol and Rob Wynne.
