Dan Herschlein: The Architect

(Monday) (Saturday)

His often life-size sculptural and relief works are meticulously crafted using cast plaster as well as common carpentry and furniture-making materials such as wood, joint compound, and wax. The fragmented spaces he creates suggest the uncanny atmosphere of nightmares, merging markers of domesticity—sofas, tables, recliners, and windows—with human figures or wandering body parts to underscore how furniture, architecture, and bodies can all serve as vessels of memory and witnesses of loss.



Herschlein presents a new installation in the window of the New Museum’s 231 Bowery building. His project joins a new series of window installations that relaunches a program the New Museum originally mounted in the 1980s.



This project is curated by Natalie Bell, Associate Curator.



Dan Herschlein (b. 1989, Bayville, NY) lives and works in Brooklyn. Recent solo exhibitions include “Safe as Houses” at JTT, New York (2017); “The Stillness of Eddies” at 56 Henry, New York (2016); “Worm” at AA|LA, Los Angeles (2016); and “The Enthusiast” at JTT, New York (2015). Group exhibitions include the Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik (2018) and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery (2018), Bureau (2018), Helena Anrather (2017), SIGNAL (2015), New Release (2015), and Recess (2012) in New York. Herschlein received a BFA from New York University in 2010.
