frieze masters 2018: beyond the plane
4 October 2018Stephen Friedman Gallery presents ‘Beyond the Plane', a curated exhibition of six international artists shown together for the first time: Alberto Burri, Sergio Camargo, Noemí Escandell, Ben Nicholson, Suzanne Blank Redstone and Loló Soldevilla. Working in Europe, North and South America, these artists engage with the picture plane to explore questions of perception, space and form. While some of them interrogate the illusionistic space of the two-dimensional, others refute the representational qualities of the picture plane altogether by highlighting its material presence.
