Alan Neider // Double Yellow Awning


fabric, clothing, paint on moving blanket

After spending about 4 years making horizontally oriented paintings, some being 20’ wide, using acrylics and applied with squeegees; I drastically changed everything. I started making ‘curtains’. Again, I spent about 4 years on the curtains. I welded steel superstructures that came off the wall 30-36” and then sewed fabrics onto these steel structures.

I made this piece to go along with my solo show at the Nancy Lurie Gallery (closed long ago) in Chicago in 1980. Visitors had to walk through the awning in order to get into the gallery to see the show. I was showing a large series of 3-D Curtains.
