Work by Michael Queenland is included in the exhibit B.B.S.Q. on view May 11 – June 22, 2013 at Wallspace gallery in New York. The title and spirit of the exhibition play on (and nod to) Duchamp’s L.H.O.O.Q., engaging with notions of the readymade, the body and the often surreal and absurd spaces in between. Furthermore, all of these works evince a studied exploration of the thresholds of their mediums, pushing against the edges as both a strategy of discovery and a locus of meaning.

Michael Queenland (b. 1970) lives and works in New Haven, CT, where he is assistant professor of sculpture at Yale University Graduate School of Art. Recent exhibitions include, Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders, curated by Jeffrey Uslip, Santa Monica Museum of Art, Santa Monica, CA (2012); Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY (2008); Nina in Position, Artists Space, New York, NY (2008); The MORL or NYC-Apartment, LA><ART, Los Angeles, CA (2007); Bread & Balloons, Harris Lieberman, New York, NY (2007).
