Sharing art in person is truly one of our most cherished experiences.
While curating our booth for The Armory Show 2021, we were conscious to choose a mixture of both new and historically important artworks that, because of their dynamic presence, are experienced best in person, including: luxuriant, impasto abstractions by Young-Il Ahn (b. 1934 - d. 2020); deft, material examinations of the American caste system by Alfred Conteh; luminous pill reliefs by Beverly Fishman; richly textured, multimedia wall works by Jeffrey Gibson; luminescent, pop-inspired paintings and sculptures from Deborah Kass; a defining work of mini-maximalist portraiture from José Lerma; a selection of extraordinary, geometric encaustic paintings by one of the latest artists to join our program, the critically acclaimed abstract painter James Little; and a suite of rarely seem, seminal early abstractions by Clare Rojas.
We are also proud to be presenting a selection of key works from artists spotlighted in our summer solo shows, including: Haitian-Canadian artist Manuel Mathieu, whose exhibition Negroland: A Landscape of Desires premiered this summer at Kavi Gupta | Elizabeth St.; Los Angeles based artist Kour Pour, whose exhibition Familiar Spirits is currently on view at Kavi Gupta | Washington Blvd.; and South African artist Mary Sibande, whose exhibition Unhand Me, Demon! recently inaugurated our new street level gallery space at Kavi Gupta | Washington Blvd.; as well as a selection of new works from a group of emerging and mid-career artists new to our program, including Alisa Sikelianos-Carter, Basil Kincaid, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Suchitra Mattai, and Michi Meko, all of whom are featured in the group exhibition Realms of Refuge, currently on view at Kavi Gupta | Elizabeth St.
