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.
“Playing as well on a juxtaposition of the childlike, the handmade and the rural with the tough glamour of metropolitan hip-hop culture, Cordova concocts a refreshing and resonant mix in his first solo outing at this gallery.” Read more here. Keep ‘em coming, New York!

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