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 group exhibition of new and historical works by Jonathan Baldock, Huguette Caland, Jeffrey Gibson and Tau Lewis.

‘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.

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.
