NEW YORK—The Paula Cooper Gallery will present a group exhibition titled Commentary with works by Jonathan Borofsky, Sam Durant, Wayne Gonzales, Hans Haacke, Glenn Ligon, Walid Raad, Kelley Walker, Meg Webster, and Carey Young.

The exhibition will be on view from February 19 through March 14, 2009 at 521 West 21st Street.

From Jonathan Borofsky’s painting of the Soviet flag to Hans Haacke’s reappropriations of Paine Webber’s advertisements, from Sam Durant’s mirror spray-painted with slogans from May 1968 to Carey Young’s contractual take on constitutional rights, this show presents a variety of artistic responses to social upheavals, past and present, in their differences and striking sameness.
