Deborah Roberts: If they come
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present American artist Deborah Roberts' first solo exhibition at the gallery and in Europe. Combining collage with mixed media, Roberts' figurative works depict the complexity of black subjecthood and explore themes of race, identity and gender politics. The exhibition is accompanied by a new publication featuring an essay by Daniella Rose King, Whitney-Lauder Curatorial Fellow at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Roberts will have a major solo exhibition at The Contemporary Austin, Texas in September 2020.
Denzil Forrester: A Survey
Private View: Thursday 14 March, 6-8pm
Wayne Gonzales' fifth solo exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery comprises paintings that interrogate American history. Produced between 2015 and 2019, all of the works in the exhibition share an inherent ‘American-ness' in terms of subject matter and sensibility. Drawing on source material from his own photographs, and those by iconic modernists including Walker Evans and Charles Sheeler, Gonzales' meticulously crosshatched paintings critically examine the contemporary American landscape.
