José Parlá: No Space / Non Place is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Avis Larson, Assistant Curator.
Parlá is known for his paintings and sculptural works that examine the concept of place. Using the backdrop of world cities, the work explores the accumulated history of urban environments, capturing the essence of a place at the brief moment between past and future. In this group of new paintings Parlá abandons the concept of a specific place to explore a generic urbanism reflecting the turbulence of political situations around the world.
