Jack Pierson: New Pieces
Jack Pierson's latest book, New Pieces, features new assemblage works that the artist started making during quarantine in his Ridgewood, Queens, studio. Assemblage has long played a role in Pierson's career, from his early verit installation pieces to his iconic "word pieces." These new works consist mainly of items found in and around his studio building, which were then pinned directly to the wall.
As Bonnie Morrison writes, "These are things that Pierson has accumulated as well as the things that have no doubt accumulated around him. To be fabricated in the year everything took on different meaning is also to take every fabricated thing's meaning different(ly)."
