Beeler Gallery extends Roxy Paine: Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Beeler Gallery is pleased to announce that it will extend Roxy Paine: Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor, a solo exhibition by the New York-based artist Roxy Paine, through March 10, 2017, due to popular demand.

The exhibition features five dioramas that explore contemporary habitats — from a fast food counter in Carcass, 2013, to a boxing ring in bastard octopus, 2014.

The dioramas are enormous — with the largest piece, Checkpoint, measuring 14’ by 26’ 11” by 18’ 7 ½. Roxy Paine: Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor marks the first time more than two of Paine’s large-scale dioramas have been seen together. (Checkpoint and Control Room were at the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College earlier this year; the other three pieces came from New York, Chicago, and Seattle.)

The exhibition opened at Beeler Gallery on Oct. 13 and was previously scheduled to run through Dec. 30, 2016.

Roxy Paine: Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor has been extremely popular since its opening, and there has been a lot of national interest in the exhibition,” said Ian Ruffino, Interim Director of Exhibitions at Beeler Gallery. “We wanted to give more people a chance to see this important show.”
