“Roving Signs”

at Matthew Marks,
522 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011

Terry Winters, an artist known for his abstract, biomorphic paintings, has curated a revealing group show for his longtime gallery. Inspired by a series of 18 cat's cradle-like string-on-paper collages by the famous ethnomusicologist Harry Smith, Winters filled out "Group Signs" with elegantly folksy and music-related work by 10 other artists, among them Rachel Harrison (whose all-black sculpture features a vinyl record), Conlon Nancarrow (a player piano scroll) and John Cohen (intimate black-and-white photos of weavers taken in the mid-'50s).
