We could not be more thrilled about the art world’s warm reception of William Cordova’s brilliant solo show in New York.
Here’s another great review, this time in
Time Out New Yorksaying William “stirs up a likable chaos” with his exhibition “Laberintos” at Sikkema Jenkins.

William’s work will be included in the Nasher Museum’s upcoming exhibition, “The Record.”
