Star Street marks an important new showcase for Judy Rifka’s most recent works on paper and canvas. Her assembled compositions suggest universes as well as the age-old human desire for mark making. Like cave drawings for the twenty first century, her latest collage and painting is presented in juxtaposition with the graffiti work of her Lower East Side neighbor, tagger Victor Ving.
Star Street also includes a presentation of her video works with British sound and visual artist Daniel Dibble. Rifka and Dibble maintain an ongoing virtual collaboration and their output is testament to Judy’s ease at incorporating contemporary technologies with her mature artistic sensibilities.
Rifka’s work has been featured in many major exhibitions such as the 1983 Whitney Biennial and the 1975 Whitney Biennial; Documenta VII, Kassel; Carnegie Mellon University; Institute
of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; The Brooklyn Museum; Bass Museum of Art, Miami; Kunsthalle Bonn, Germany; Kunsthalle Luzern, Switzerland; Detroit Museum, Michigan; The Museum of Fine Art, Boston; and others.
