Based in: Brooklyn
Ned Vena mounted two very different solo shows in 2012: on display at Clifton Benevento in New York were a collection of ink blotter paintings and acid-etched security glass panels, while at White Flag Projects in St. Louis, a new series featuring steel doors opening out of the walls made a stark, minimalist statement. Vena also had a two person show with Josh Kolbo at Société Berlin in the Spring, and featured in group shows at Halsey McKay in East Hampton, Bugada & Cargnel in Paris, Brand New Gallery in Milan, Modern Collections in London, The Journal Gallery in Brooklyn, Steven Zevitas Gallery in Boston and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. He will participate in several group shows in London in 2013, at Massimo de Carlo (the Milan gallery officially opens its UK outpost in the Spring) and the Zabludowicz Collection.
