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.

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

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.

Melvin Edwards
In Oklahoma
510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

April 13, 2017 - May 20, 2017
Alexander Gray Associates presented Melvin Edwards: In Oklahoma, the artist’s fifth solo-exhibition at the Gallery, featuring recent sculptures. This exhibition brought together the artist’s first new body of work since his 2015 retrospective Melvin Edwards: Five Decades, and revealed his knowledge of global history related to Africa and the diaspora as a thematic touchpoint to enrich his abstract aesthetic. This interest reveals itself through his vocabulary of familiar forms, including chains, tools, and barbed wire, as well as his titles that associate collective history with personal narrative.

Luis Camnitzer
Short Stories
510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

February 23, 2017 - April 1, 2017
Alexander Gray Associates presented Luis Camnitzer: Short Stories, featuring new work in a variety of media, including: video, printmaking, and modified readymade objects. For his fifth solo-exhibition at the Gallery, Camnitzer employed his characteristic wit to investigate notions of time, creating open narratives for viewer engagement, redefining established systems, and questioning assumed realities. His recent work speaks to his belief in art making as a platform for organizing and acquiring new information through the decontextualization of familiar tools and objects.
