Hulda Guzmán: Meet me in the forest

Private View: Tuesday 15 March, 6-8pm

Stephen Friedman Gallery will present Hulda Guzmán's first solo exhibition in the UK in the spring of 2022, after announcing her representation in October this year. The artist's paintings are populated by a technicolour cast of humans, animals, anthropomorphic plants and imaginary creatures. Employing distinct architectural locations and spatial tricks such as mise en abîme, her narratives occupy contradictory, dreamlike realities. Charged with postcolonial and ecological discourses, Guzmán’s paintings revitalise tropes of the natural world as a repository for our wilder instincts.

Juan Araujo

Private View: Tuesday 15 March, 6-8pm

Since moving to Portugal from Venezuela, Juan Araujo has become fascinated with the genesis of modern and postmodern architecture in Europe, and how these ideals travelled across the Atlantic to influence the development of 20th century Latin American buildings. Araujo’s research manifests itself in hyper-realistic paintings based on archival images found in books, photographs and online. For his second solo exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery, Araujo focuses on the relationship between artists, architecture and creative states of mind. The show will follow a major solo installation at Art Basel Unlimited in September 2021.

Rivane Neuenschwander

Private View: Tuesday 15 March, 6-8pm

Drawing on the history of Latin American conceptualism, Rivane Neuenschwander's practice is underpinned by themes of mutability, geography and the natural world. This presentation at the gallery will comprise a new series of works on paper that continues her longstanding exploration of fear. The drawings depict anthropomorphic creatures entwined in brutal configurations. References to bloodshed and the erotic invoke the violent colonial history of Brazil and its exoticisation in western cultures. The presentation will follow her mid-career solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz in November 2021.

Caroline Walker: Lisa

Private View: Thursday 28 April, 6-8pm

Caroline Walker’s cinematic paintings and works on paper reveal the diverse experiences of women living in contemporary society. For her first exhibition at the gallery, Walker will present a new body of work that traces the daily life of her sister-in-law Lisa, as she becomes a mother. Drawing on photographic source material, these paintings blur the boundary between objective documentary and personal experience. The show will echo the themes of Walker’s presentation for Fitzrovia Chapel, London in February 2022, comprising works made during her residency at University College Hospital’s maternity wing.

Deborah Roberts: I want to talk about you

Private View: Thursday 9 June, 6-8pm

Combining collage with mixed media, Deborah Roberts' figurative works depict the complexity of black subjecthood and explore themes of race, identity and gender politics. Roberts’ second solo exhibition will continue her investigation of the challenges encountered by Black children as they respond to social constructs perpetuated by the white gaze and western visual culture. This follows Roberts’ first solo institutional exhibition in the UK at The Bluecoat, Liverpool in 2021 and coincides with her touring show 'I'm', organised by the Contemporary Austin, Texas.

Group Exhibition

Private View: Thursday 9 June, 6-8pm

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition curated by Deborah Roberts (artist) and Katy Hessel (curator, art historian and founder of @thegreatwomenartists), based on the notion of 'collage'. The show will investigate how contemporary female artists interpret the technique as both a concept and art form, whether that be piecing together materials in the traditional sense, or amalgamating ideas, gestures and memories within one image. This presentation will be held alongside Roberts’ solo exhibition ‘I want to talk about you’ to expand the conversation surrounding her own exploration of collage.
