fascia board Second return to The Shed – a multidisciplinary arts venue in New York’s Hudson Yards. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the art fair, and the Big Apple edition of the art fair will host 65 galleries with multiple blue-chip brands offering individual, group and thematic showcases by some of the world’s leading artists.
Highlights include solo exhibitions of large-scale works by Carol Bove at David Zwirner, Albert Oehlen at Gagosian, Mai-Thu Perret at David Kordansky and Charles Gaines at Hauser & Wirth. Additionally, the Sadie Coles headquarters will spotlight the work of Alex Da Corte to complement the roster of renowned artists such as Urs fischer and Sarah Lucas. Not to mention that Perrotin will be showing sculptures from its star-studded roster of artists such as Paola Pivi, Bharti Kher, Daniel Arsham and Takashi Murakami.
While there is a plethora of programming, a solo show at Frieze is significant and vital to any artist who keeps people focused on his or her work and gives them a sense of their vision. We’ve compiled a quick list of artist shows to check out at The Shed. Read on and take this article with you during the busy Frieze New York 2022 art fair, which runs May 18-22.
Albert Oehlen at Gagosian, Booth B8
Gagosian Presenting a solo presentation of Albert Oehlen. With the theme of commercialism, the booth features vending machines offering Kafftee/Cofftea, a mixed coffee/tea drink developed by Oehlen in collaboration with Aqua Monaco. A limited number of bottles will be available to the public for free.
The booth also featured four paintings from 2014, reinforcing the artist’s business idea. These canvases blend a Pop Art graphic aesthetic with gestural abstract markers made with hands, rags and spray cans, and traditional brushes.
Latifa Echakhch at Pace, booth B12
pace A new series of paintings by Moroccan-born Swiss artist Latifa Echakhch is on display. The gallery’s booth is an extension of Echakhch’s solo exhibition at the Pace London space called “Night.” The works at the exhibition are also related to the theme of the exhibition titled “Concerts”, which the artist presented on behalf of Switzerland at the 59th Venice Biennale. The works focus on six paintings by Echakhch from 2022, featuring the artist’s signature visual vocabulary of symbols, systems and allusions. Echakhch employs a naive mural technique to transform images of nightlife in Lausanne, Switzerland, originally created by photographer Sim Ouch, a friend of the artist.
Carol Bove at David Zwirner booth B14
Zwirner A new sculpture by Carol Bove in an installation designed by the artist himself is on display. “Bove’s new sculptures convey a distinct lightness that belies their materiality,” the gallery said in a statement.
In the installation, two pieces are displayed on a table designed by Ettore Sottsass and displayed as sculptural exhibition furniture, while the others are mounted on a display wall covered in a synthetic orange coral fabric that replicates the sculpture surface color. “The pieces alternately vibrate or recede in front of the surrounding walls,” added the gallery. All in all, Bove plays with the concept of materiality in this dizzying installation that blurs the lines between art and design.
Mai-Thu Perret at David Kordansky, booth B1
David Kordanski Gallery A series of sculptures by Swiss artist Mai-Thu Perret is on display. The artist is known for his multidisciplinary practice exploring feminist counter-narratives as well as mystical and utopian impulses. The works on display are related to the work of Perret, whose solo exhibition titled “Real Estate” will be on view at the Istituto Svizzero in Rome through June 26, 2022.
These particular works focus on her interest in Roman mythological goddesses “while conceptually re-constructing archetypal narratives and iconography throughout the presentation,” the gallery said in a statement.
Charles Gaines at Hauser & Wirth, Booth B05
Hauser & Wirth Five new large-scale works by Charles Gaines are in focus numbers and trees. To accompany the five plexiglass grids on display, the gallery also provided Gaines’ limited edition etchings to support the moving chain — Artist’s upcoming public art project with Creative Time.
“In the new work, Gaines reverses his signature layering process for the first time since he began his plexiglass series in 1986 – printing an enlarged photo detail of a tree on top of the plexiglass rather than on the back panel of the piece ,” the gallery said in a statement. “This new approach brings the tree’s shady branches to the foreground and masks the brightly coloured numbered grid beneath it.”
While The Shed hosts its main fair, other contemporary art events are shown across the city.Satellite events include a new digital art gallery that will be Times Square 50th Street Stationa group exhibition curated by Jack Sibbert titled “Life in an ivory tower,” Lauren HalseyThe eponymous solo exhibition at David Kordansky Galley in Chelsea and Takashi Murakami’s augmented reality fusion exhibition at Gagosian titled “Arrow through history. ”
