Frank Bowling

Frank Bowling: Make It New

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

September 6, 2018 - October 13, 2018
Alexander Gray Associates presents its first exhibition of work by Frank Bowling OBE, RA (b.1934), "Frank Bowling: Make it New." Born in British Guiana, Bowling maintains studios in London and New York. For over five decades, his practice has been defined by its integration of autobiography and postcolonial geopolitics into abstraction. Featuring a selection of recent work, the presentation celebrates Bowling’s contributions to the field of painting.

Hugh Steers

The Nullities of Life

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

June 6, 2018 - July 20, 2018
Alexander Gray Associates presented its third exhibition of work by Hugh Steers (b.1962—d.1995), "The Nullities of Life." Before his death at 32 from AIDS related complications, Steers created allegorical images that captured the emotional and political tenor of New York in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Embracing representational painting and figuration at a time when such approaches were deemed unfashionable, his intimate compositions are poignant symbols of life under the specter of AIDS. Featuring a selection of paintings and works on paper, the show highlights Steers’ interest in capturing what he once described as “my ‘nullities of life,’” seemingly insignificant moments rendered extraordinary through luminous color and light and evocative forms.

Harmony Hammond

Inappropriate Longings

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

April 19, 2018 - May 26, 2018
Alexander Gray Associates presented its third exhibition of work by Harmony Hammond (b.1944), "Harmony Hammond: Inappropriate Longings." Featuring an installation and a selection of mixed media paintings and works on paper, the exhibition highlighted the artist’s practice during the 1990s. These works’ use of materials as visual metaphors for desire, violence, place, and the effects of time, foul weather, and foul play continue Hammond’s ongoing project to “bring content into the world of abstraction.”

Kay Rosen

Stirring Wirds

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

February 22, 2018 - April 7, 2018
Alexander Gray Associates presented "Kay Rosen: Stirring Wirds," the artist’s first exhibition with the Gallery. Focused on recent work, the exhibition underscored a political conscience that grounds Rosen’s five decade career exploring the use of language and text.

Valeska Soares

Neither Here Nor There

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

November 1, 2017 - December 15, 2017
Alexander Gray Associates is pleased to announce Neither Here Nor There, Valeska Soares' first exhibition with the Gallery. The artist, who has lived and worked in Brooklyn since 1992, has maintained deep connections to her native Brazil while positioning herself in New York’s multi-faceted art scene. With the works on view in the exhibition, Soares re-interprets the neutral gallery spaces as domestic zones, affirming Alexander Gray Associates as a new home for her work in her adopted city.

Polly Apfelbaum

The Potential of Women

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

September 7, 2017 - October 21, 2017
Alexander Gray Associates presented Polly Apfelbaum: The Potential of Women, the artist’s first exhibition at the Gallery. The exhibition featured all new work, including gouache drawings, hand-woven rugs, and wall-mounted ceramics. The key visual motif comes from the 1963 book, The Potential of Woman, published in conjunction with a symposium of the same name.

Betty Parsons

Invisible Presence

510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

May 25, 2017 - July 14, 2017
Alexander Gray Associates presented its first exhibition of work by Betty Parsons (b.1900, New York City, NY – d.1982, Southold, NY), since recently becoming the representative of the Estate. The exhibition featured work from the early 1920s through 1981, tracing her artistic development from realist sculpture to her experimentation with figuration and abstraction in her painting and sculptural practices.
