Grimm is pleased to announce The Old New World, the first solo exhibition in Europe by the Brooklyn-based artist Jonathan Marshall.
Creating paintings, sculptures, and large-format quilt- maps, Marshall blurs lines between disciplines and material approaches to making art, so that he may better understand his position in time, space, and culture.
