Beginng on February 27, the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College, SUNY, in Purchase, New York will present Abney’s first solo museum exhibition, Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush, which was organized in 2017 by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University. The show will include approximately 30 of the artist’s paintings and collages, which were made over the last decade. Now on national tour, the Neuberger will be its last stop.
