Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition by British artist Sarah Ball. Demonstrating an acute sensitivity to the psyche of her subjects, Ball’s enigmatic portraits explore the way we project images of ourselves to the world.

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with British artist Holly Hendry. Exploring the idiosyncrasies of the human body, Hendry’s sculptures and installations take formal inspiration from machinery and diagrammatic depictions of anatomy. Expanded casting methods are central to the artist’s process in which she uses an array of materials like steel, Jesmonite, silicone, ash, charcoal, lipstick, chewed gum, soap, foam, marble and grit. Her new work challenges our perception of the neat distinction between our physical bodies, emotions and mechanisation.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present a third solo exhibition by pioneering Japanese artist Jiro Takamatsu opening on 17 September 2021. This presentation examines a body of work from the early 1970s, a fertile period of Takamatsu’s practice, and is on view during Frieze London.
American artist Marina Adams presents the second instalment of her two-part exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery on 17 September 2021. ‘Wild Is Its Own Way’ focuses on new and recent large-scale paintings created over the last two years.

This project follows Adams’ highly acclaimed solo exhibition at Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Dallas, Texas in autumn 2020.

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present ‘Multiple IV’, its fourth annual exhibition of editions by gallery artists. For the first time, the gallery will focus on an individual artist by presenting a body of unseen works by Scottish sculptor and printmaker Claire Barclay. Discussing the show, Barclay explains: “This exhibition brings together unique print works that have evolved over the last three years from improvised screen and relief printing processes. My sculptural mindset has very much influenced these works; layered cut-out shapes and objects seemingly float within the boundaries of the paper whilst attention is drawn to the material quality of ink built up on their surfaces.” This project precedes a major solo exhibition of Barclay’s work at The MAC, Belfast in 2022.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present Leilah Babirye’s first solo exhibition in the UK and Europe in June 2021, following the announcement of her representation in April 2020.

Opening on 4 June 2021, the exhibition comprises quilts, sculptures and a series of African masks that engage with the artist’s own identity as a ‘post-colonial hybrid’. The works are accompanied by archival material that captures the burgeoning interest in African art in Paris in the 1920s.
