ARTWORK SPOTLIGHT | Evelyn Statsinger, widely associated with the Monster Roster and Chicago Imagist schools, traces her legacy back to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago where she earned a bachelor’s degree in 1949. Relinquishing readily identifiable figures in favor of surrealist-inspired forms, Statsinger commingled extraordinary skill and technical precision with a prolific vocabulary in the abstract rhythms of nature and fantasy.

ON THIS DAY | Wishing the happiest of birthdays to David Hockney!
.
In 1984, Richard Gray Gallery presented new work by Hockney in its second solo exhibition dedicated to the pioneering British artist. After the show's opening, Hockney lectured at The Arts Club of Chicago, where this photograph was taken with gallery partner Paul Gray. The second image finds Hockney again in Chicago, nearly 35 years later, at the opening of his solo exhibition at Gray Warehouse in September 2018.

CLOSING SOON | Presented in the two-person exhibition titled Poetry of Plants, the photographic works of Karl Blossfeldt and Jim Dine are now on view at Die Photographische Sammlung. The exhibition closes July 21, 2019.
.
Presenting 40 heliogravures by Jim Dine alongside a survey of Blossfeldt’s photographic works, this two-person exhibition explores the overarching lyricism of plants and nature, and its prevalence in both artists' practices. While generations apart, Blossfeldt and Dine found themselves inspired by the mysteries of their botanical subjects, each launched into divergent yet similarly nuanced engagements with their subjects. While Dine's heliogravures are larger in size and explore aspects of the plant world in a manner that is formally distinct from Blossfeldt’s approach, the two bodies of work are visually related in ways that are undeniable to the viewer.
.
On view in the exhibition, Dine's Entrada Drive series of heliogravures draws on an extensive collection of approximately 1,500 photographic works that the artist has entrusted to the care of Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur in 2005. This is the fourth exhibition that the institution has dedicated to the artist.

NEW RELEASE | Gray is pleased to announce the release of our latest publication, the exhibition catalogue for Ewan Gibbs: New York / Chicago.
.
The book's introductory text takes the format of a conversation between the artist and Richard Shiff, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History and Director at the Center for the Study of Modernism at the University of Texas, Austin. Together, they survey Gibbs's predecessors within the medium of drawing and discuss his myriad art historical references. The plates within the catalogue also illustrate each work twice, once in full and once in hi-res detail that captures the artist's almost microscopic gestures.
.
Ewan Gibbs: New York / Chicago is now available for purchase on our website. Link in bio! Design by @hour.studio.

The solo exhibition, surveying an array of work dating from 1961-2016, exhibits a special and coherent set of paintings and sculptures that reveal the artist's continued exploration of the autobiographical through iconic and recurring motifs: tools, hearts, bathrobes, the figure of venus, and Pinocchio.

FINAL DAY | Today is the last day to visit our solo exhibitions of new works by Theaster Gates and Ewan Gibbs. Though operating in contrasting mediums and contexts, Gates and Gibbs share a profound focus on urban architecture and how space affects individual memory and collective history. This dual dedication to architectural knowledge and artistic practice also reflects the similar commitment of our late founder, Richard Gray, who studied architecture before opening the gallery in 1963, and who carried a deep understanding of space with him in the many decades that followed.

Theaster Gates: Every Square Needs a Circle, on view at Gray Warehouse in Chicago through 5 PM CT.

FINAL DAY | Tomorrow is the final day to see Every Square Needs a Circle, Theaster Gates's latest solo exhibition in his hometown. Extending architectural elements and archival materials through tar paintings and neon objects, the works on view put forth a critique of the city that draws Black economies and Black intelligence into sharp focus.
.
"The work is... about sculpture and how things I believe in manifest through the material world.” - Theaster Gates
.
On view 11 AM - 5 PM tomorrow, Saturday, June 29 at Gray Warehouse, 2044 West Carroll Ave.

CLOSING TOMORROW | Last chance to see Ewan Gibbs's latest works in New York / Chicago. The artist's solo exhibition presents a body of recent drawings based on the artist’s personal encounters in the two cities. Each drawing contains thousands of minuscule pen and pencil marks and pinpricks—a system developed by Gibbs over twenty-five years ago after seeing knitting patterns containing various graphic symbols within a large, organized grid.
.
“The allure of Gibbs’s maniacally rendered [illustrations] stems from the stunning difficulty of his task, the monklike patience it requires, and the bravura skill he brings to bear.” - James Yood
.
On view through tomorrow, Saturday, June 29 at Gray New York, 1018 Madison Ave.

CLOSING SOON | Only three days left to see Into the Space of Magdalena Abakanowicz at the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Riga, Latvia. Organized in tandem with the Latvian National Museum of Art, the exhibition presents fifteen significant works by the Polish artist, including her signature "Abakan" textiles and haunting figures created from burlap and resin.
.
“There is no tool between me and the material I use. I choose it with my hands. I shape it with my hands. My hands transmit my energy to it. By translating an idea into a shape, they will always pass on something escaping conceptualisation. They will reveal the unconscious.” - Magdalena Abakanowicz
.
Installation images from Into the Space of Magdalena Abakanowicz: Textile and Sculpture at the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Riga, Latvia. On view through this Sunday, June 30.

ON VIEW | Newly on view at Museum Beelden aan Zee in The Hague, Netherlands is a special survey of works by Jaume Plensa. The exhibition, which opened on Friday, was organized on the occasion of the museum's 25-year anniversary and showcases an important selection of sculptural work by the artist.
.
Jaume Plensa, as a young artist, was recognized early on by Theo and Lida Scholten, the very art collectors who founded Museum Beelden aan Zee. Having purchased one of his earliest sculptures in the 80's, the couple went on to found the museum in 1994. A catalogue spanning Plensa’s work from the past three decades accompanies the exhibition with essays written by Anna Tilroe, critic and curator of the Eleven Fountain project, and Jean-Louis Andral, director of the Musée Picasso in Antibes.
.
The exhibition will remain on view through September 22, 2019.

REVIEW | Frieze critic Joel Kuennen's review of Theaster Gates: Every Square Needs a Circle is now live. Entitled "Theaster Gates Tackles the Grammar of Race, Mass Incarceration and Poverty," the article contextualizes the myriad historical, cultural, and sociological components which Gates has made manifest in ways both physical and psychological.
.
"Gates proposes a modernism that re-centres black spirituality – one that takes into account the history of oppression while ultimately seeking to transcend it." - Joel Kuennen.

.
“Many times we are blinding ourselves with our hands to be in a more comfortable position." - Jaume Plensa

06/14/2019

ART BASEL | Among the significant works by Alex Katz on view in Gray's booth is the painter's 1999 portrait of British artist Cecily Brown. The large-scale canvas is an ode not just to the younger painter's stature within contemporary painting, but also to the commonalities between the two artists' practices—both employ a lightning quick approach to covering ground with color, both avoid interrupting gesture with extraneous thinking, and both have produced iconic oeuvres.
.
As prolific biographer Calvin Tomkins wrote in his 2018 profile on Katz for The New Yorker, Katz "makes us see the world the way he sees it, clear and up close, with all but the most essential details pared away."
.
Visit us at Booth G7 to see works by Katz, Willem de Kooning, Jim Dine, Theaster Gates, Joan Mitchell, Pablo Picasso, and many others.
