Tonico Lemos Auad

9 February 2018 - 10 March 2018
Stephen Friedman Gallery is proud to present Brazilian artist Tonico Lemos
Auad's third solo exhibition at the gallery. The artist continues his long-standing
exploration of traditional craft by investigating themes of architecture, landscape
and human interaction. Through everyday materials such as linen, wool, stone
and wood, the viewer is treated to a series of new textile reliefs, sculptures and
site-specific installations.

Tonico Lemos Auad

23 November 2012 - 26 January 2013
Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Tonico Lemos Auad. Brazilian born and London-based, Auad's work is inspired by both his cultural heritage and by notions of chance, faith and superstition. Following recent inclusion in the Folkestone Triennial, Além da Vanguarda Bienal Naïfs do Brasil and ‘House of Cards' at Waddesdon Manor, this will be the artist's second solo exhibition in the gallery. For this presentation, Auad will create a ‘planted archaeology' with recognisable forms and everyday materials subverted under his hand. 

Tonico Lemos Auad: Mouth, Ears, Eyes, Just Like Us

13 March 2009 - 18 April 2009
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present new work by London-based Brazilian artist Tonico Lemos Auad, his first major presentation in the UK. Auad's work is concerned with materiality, sensuality, process and the relationship between the audience and their environment. Using a wide range of materials, from the ephemeral and everyday to the precious and enduring, he disregards material value to create lyrical, often transient forms.
