Brazilian artist Luiz Zerbini presents his second exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery, following his acclaimed solo show at South London Gallery in 2018. Juxtaposing organic and geometric forms, Zerbini’s paintings explore the relationship between colour, light and movement. Inspired by the Amazon and Mata Atlântica rainforests, the exhibition reflects the artist’s ongoing interest in the relationship between nature and humanity in and around Rio de Janeiro.
‘In Nature’, is a new presentation visible to Old Burlington street from the window of the gallery’s viewing room and is available to the viewer online and by appointment.
Taking place in both galleries on Old Burlington Street in Mayfair, its home since 1995, this unique event showcases the diversity of the gallery programme by celebrating its history whilst also looking ahead to the future.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present ‘Denzil Forrester in Rome’, a selection of large-scale paintings and works on paper by Grenada-born, British artist Denzil Forrester. Initially intended for Frieze Masters, the gallery presents Forrester’s solo project in a specially designed space at 30 Old Burlington Street.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present a selection of new works by British sculptor Holly Hendry. Initially intended for Frieze London, the gallery will present Hendry’s solo project in a specially designed space at 30 Old Burlington Street in October.
In light of the events of the past month and the Black Lives Matter movement, Stephen Friedman Gallery has been amplifying its artists' voices in solidarity with the cause. To mark the reopening of the gallery, a monumental work by acclaimed British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare CBE is presented for the first time in the UK. The sculpture is installed in the gallery’s Viewing Room, making ‘Justice for All’ visible from the street and giving the work the public focus it deserves. Lights remain on during the night to make the sculpture available to the public 24/7.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present a new installation ‘Facecrime (suspect)’ by British artist Jonathan Baldock in Gallery Two. Originally commissioned for Art Basel Hong Kong 2020 before the fair’s cancellation, 'Facecrime (suspect)’ is a monumental installation comprising precariously stacked ceramic columns. Evoking both ancient ruins and a surreal vision of the future, these hand-crafted forms reflect the artist's interest in myth, folklore and narratives associated with ‘outsider' practices.
Andreas Eriksson's presentation at Stephen Friedman Gallery comprises a new series of large-scale handwoven tapestries and a majestic oil and acrylic painting. The Swedish artist is known for his subtly textured paintings of the natural world, describing them as “existential landscapes”. This new body of tapestries expands the artist’s formal language and demonstrates the connections between these two distinct practices.
