Inaugural Exhibition at the New Gallery

The gallery's 34 East 69th Street location in New York is now open. Featuring works by Josef and Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, and Ray Johnson, the first exhibition explores the influence of Black Mountain College, a unique experiment in arts education where these artists met in the late 1940s.

The uptown gallery will feature one to two historical exhibitions each year in addition to special projects and private viewings. The space is shared with art advisory firm Adler Beatty, which represents The Ray Johnson Estate.

Wolfgang Tillmans: ZWISCHEN 1943 UND 1973 LAGEN 30 JAHRE. 30 JAHRE NACH 1973 WAR DAS JAHR 2003

23 September - 12 November 2017

In honor of the 200th anniversary of the Kunstverein in Hamburg, Wolfgang Tillmans has created a new large scale installation which reflects on his practice of the last 30 years.

Titled ZWISCHEN 1943 UND 1973 LAGEN 30 JAHRE. 30 JAHRE NACH 1973 WAR DAS JAHR 2003 (There were 30 years between 1943 and 1793. 30 years from 1973 was the year 2003), the installation incorporates a 4-channel sound work created specifically for the Kunstverein, video work, and large scale photographs which are being presented publicly for the first time. Also included will be an installation on metal tables which extends the artist's truth study center project, begun in 2005.

The artist has long been connected to Hamburg, where his first exhibition was held at a cafe in 1988. In 2001, Deichtorhallen presented his first major museum survey.

Yayoi Kusama

September 23 – December 9, 2017

Four paintings from Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Net series will be presented at Judd Foundation in New York this Fall. The exhibition will be curated by Donald Judd's son Flavin Judd, and recalls his father's friendship with Kusama and support of her work, including the early Infinity Net paintings. In an ARTNEWS review of Kusama's first solo exhibition in New York at the artist-run Brata Gallery in 1959, Donald Judd wrote, "Yayoi Kusama is an original painter. The five white, very large paintings are strong, advanced in concept and realized . . . The effect is both complex and simple."

The exhibition will be accompanied by public programs exploring Judd's relationship with his contemporaries in New York from the 1960s through the 1980s.

Thomas Ruff

27 September 2017 – 21 January 2018

Thomas Ruff is the first major retrospective of the artist's work in London. Curated by Whitechapel Gallery Director Iwona Blazwick, the exhibition will span the full range of Ruff's photographic practice, from early series such as L'Empereur, made in Paris in 1982, to his acclaimed Portraits begun in 1981, and his most recent press++ series based on archival newspaper clippings. As the artist told Aperture magazine, "I think photography is still the most influential medium in the world, and I have to deconstruct [its] conventions."

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated publication including essays by David Campany and Sarah Jones.

Anni Albers: Touching Vision

October 6, 2017 - January 14, 2018

Anni Albers: Touching Vision will provide an in-depth survey of the artist's most important series  created between 1925 and the late 1970s, exploring the formal development and continuing influence of her practice.

The earlier series featured in the exhibition date from the period Anni Albers spent studying at the Bauhaus in Germany, where she enrolled in 1922. There, she experimented with weaving, creating abstract wall hangings as well as works on paper. Following her emigration to the United States with her husband Josef in 1933, the couple became integral to the avant-garde community at Black Mountain College, where Anni Albers continued to work with textiles and expanded her practice through design, teaching, and writing. In 1963, she began to work with printmaking, which became her primary medium thereafter. Her seminal book On Weaving was published in 1965.

Faced with the panoply of figures and creatures that populate Marcel Dzama's work, "In the end," writes Bradley Bailey, "we have little recourse but to give ourselves over to the staggering breadth, wit, absurdity, and magnificence of the artist's imaginative storehouse." 11 Fortune-tellers (2000) is part of selection of the artist's drawings that is currently being presented in the Viewing Room.
