More Life - Hugh Steers: Blue Towel, Red Tank

Curated by Russell Tovey, Hugh Steers: Blue Towel, Red Tank is on view at the gallery's location in Paris from December 4, 2021 through January 29, 2022. The exhibition, which is presented in collaboration with Alexander Gray Associates, is the first show dedicated to the artist’s work in Europe.

Favoring an ardent figurative style considered démodé in his lifetime, the painter Hugh Steers (1962–1995) produced canvases that carried the lineage of American painting into the AIDS era. Steers himself was diagnosed HIV-positive in 1987 at the age of twenty-five, and he went on to create work that illustrated the physical and psychic spaces of sickness as well as the compassion shared among his circle.
