Galerie Lelong represents prominent contemporary artists and estates from the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. This uniquely diverse group includes mid-career and established artists at the forefront of the international art world working across all media. The gallery presents art that challenges viewers on multiple levels and diversifies dominant understandings of modern

and contemporary art. While contemporary Latin American art has only recently begun to receive due recognition in the field, the gallery has been a key proponent of the region for decades, representing some of its most vital figures and presenting museum-quality exhibitions of their work. The gallery is proud to have represented Cildo Meireles, the Estate of Ana Mendieta, and Alfredo Jaar for over twenty years as well as the Estate of Hélio Oiticica for over a decade. Galerie Lelong has also actively engaged in the cross-generational representation of women artists at a time when women continue to be underrepresented in the art world. Etel Adnan, Zilia Sánchez, and Carolee Schneemann have been exhibiting as early as the fifties or sixties, yet their impressive bodies of work and keen visual languages have just begun to be acknowledged. The gallery also supports several artists known for their socially engaged practices, such as Alfredo Jaar, Yoko Ono, Nancy Spero, and Krzysztof Wodiczko. Contemporary sculpture is another strength of the gallery with artists such as Petah Coyne, Andy Goldsworthy, Jaume Plensa, and Ursula von Rydingsvard continually expanding the boundaries of three-dimensional expression. The gallery has a long history of working closely with prestigious museums and public institutions around the world to support the creation of new work, permanent public art projects, exhibitions both monographic and thematic, and publications on its artists. Founded in Paris in 1981 by Daniel Lelong, Jacques Dupin, and Jean Frémon, the gallery in New York opened in 1985. Directed by Mary Sabbatino, Vice President and Partner, the gallery moved to its present ground-floor location in Chelsea in 2001. Galerie Lelong is a member of the Art Dealers’ Association of America, the most esteemed organization of art galleries in the United States.

These projects, conceived in the 1980s and 1990s but only recently realized, revolve around the artist’s decades-long exploration of how perception and poetry relate to physical reality.

See you in the gallery from 6 to 8pm tonight for Gallery Night!

The gallery will remain open late for a special opportunity to view our exhibition “Tariku Shiferaw: Marking Oneself in Dark Places.”

The exhibition presents new works from two of the artist’s ongoing series, “One of These Black Boys” and “Mata Semay,” in which Shiferaw engages his practice of cultural space-making through a confrontation of exclusionary Eurocentric systems of epistemic erasure. Shiferaw’s latest series, “Mata Semay,” Amharic for “night skies,” proposes a new mythology that imagines how the night sky would exist if diasporic cultural contributions were considered in the global consciousness.

Currently on view at the , for more than fifty years, ’s visceral and haunting work was powered by her unwavering commitment to justice and her insistence upon art’s inseparability from the world’s larger social and political realities. Spero began her "Torture of Women" series in the late 1970s, juxtaposing journalistic excerpts from sources including the New York Times and Amnesty International’s Reports on Torture with printed and hand-wrought imagery on paper. ⁠

The texts—which one can read only in fragments—describe horrific examples of institutional violence perpetrated against women, here overlaid with a wrenching image of a female figure straining to crawl upon (or rise from?) the earth with an open-mouthed cry. ⁠

While its archival quality historicizes the specific stories, it serves too as an unflinching reminder of the sustained violence that continues to disproportionally target female and female-identifying people throughout the world. In a text written for the artist’s first exhibition of the series, historian said that in these works, “Spero is secretary to the apocalypse.”⁠

🏛️Opening today: 's new solo exhibition "Invisível e Indizível", curated by , at , Curitiba, Brazil through April 9, 2023.⁠

For this exhibition, an encompassing silence envelops the viewer through the monumentality of two large works with distinct constructions in dialogue: "Silent Hortense" (which stands over seven meters high) and "Invisible Rui Rui." “The symmetrical confrontation between the two sculptures in the space is an unprecedented composition in his exhibitions,” comments Dantas.⁠

The exhibition commemorates the 20th anniversary of Museu Oscar Niemeyer, a distinctive architectural landmark in Brazil.⁠

We are pleased to announce that the University of Iowa () will be holding a special program to celebrate the legacy of the artist . Inaugurating the new Gallery in the Visual Arts Building is the solo exhibition "Ana Mendieta: Universal Energy," accompanied by an opening reception and film screening with the Mendieta family on the late artist's birthday, November 18. ⁠

Mendieta earned her B.A. from the University of Iowa, later acquiring her M.A. in painting, and M.F.A in Intermedia. She remains one of the most influential artists to pass through the University of Iowa, pioneering the Intermedial world of performative and video art. Mendieta's best known body of work, the "Silueta Series" (1973-80), consists of earth-body pieces that merge her body with the surrounding landscape. Mendieta reestablished bonds with the land, exploring themes of exile, displacement, and a return to the landscape, which remain profoundly relevant today. ⁠

"And having more memories than yearnings, searching in unnamable spaces, Sicily’s orchards or Lebanon’s thinning waters, I reach a land between borders, unclaimed, and stand there, as if I were alone, but the rhythm is missing." ⁠

In memory of Etel Adnan (b.1925 – d.2021)⁠ who passed away November 14, 2021⁠

Poet, painter, novelist and supporter of human rights everywhere, Etel Adnan lived an extraordinary and exemplary life.

Today we grieve with the multitudes who loved her, especially her cherished partner, Simone Fattal.⁠

Etel Adnan painted light itself and transformed it to memory. We mourn her passing and know that she has passed to another light. We will remember her always.⁠

The presents the first comprehensive retrospective of 's oeuvre in Germany. On view until Feb 26, 2023 in Munich.⁠

The exhibition gathers artworks from all periods of the internationally renowned artist’s oeuvre and in a wide range of media. Side by side with her small-format abstract paintings, whose intensity of color lends them an almost mystical quality, her monumental tapestries, delicate works on paper, leporellos, and experiments on film shed light on her specific engagement with questions of color and form and with the cosmic dimension of time, space, and the spiritual. The exhibition also pays tribute to Adnan’s writings, which articulate her political stances with particular clarity.⁠

The exhibition was organized in cooperation with Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf.⁠

For , art critic .smee reviews ’s work in “LIFE Magazine and the Power of Photography” currently on view at . He writes:⁠

“Jaar’s installations I found more affecting. The Chilean-born, New York-based artist finds simple but powerful ways to question the effect of news photographs of traumatic events. His work expresses empathy for both photographers and their subjects. Photographers, he says on the audio guide, are often betrayed by photo agencies and media companies. They send in their work, but a ‘photo editor comes in and selects images to fit the ideological agenda of those media companies. Perhaps most of the best images were never used because they do not fit the narrative of the media and their ideological agendas.’”⁠

🤍 37 years ago today Ana was 36 years old , 2 months shy of 37.

She will always be 36 and has now been gone longer than she lived.

37= 3+7=10=1

The number 1 in numerology is the first of all numbers. It puts power into our hands as a symbol of newness and beginnings. It is the number of creation and the birth of all things - the divine origin of the universe. (Numerology.com)

Ana left us with a legacy of works that infuse this very idea of birth-- life-- rebirth. Her art will never leave us as her memory will also continue to breathe through her images and ideas.

"My art is grounded in the belief of one universal energy that runs through everything: from insect to man, from man to spectre, from spectre to plant from plant to galaxy. My works are the irrigation veins of this universal fluid. Through them ascend the ancestral sap, the original beliefs, the primordial accumulations, the unconscious thoughts that animate the world."

Today Ana begins again and again as new people discover her work and others rediscover her unforgettable images that have left imprints in our hearts.

We love you Ana ❤️ Siempre

"I started painting ten years ago, but I suspect I have been metaphorically doing so all my life. When I started painting, I just did it. I had never felt a stronger urge. The pieces that flowed out of me were very painful and direct. They had to do with the suffering, persecution, and subsequent psychological dilemmas I endured before and after becoming a young refugee from the Independence War (1961-1991) in my natal home of Eritrea, East Africa. Painting was the miracle, the final act of defiance through which I exorcised the pain and reclaimed my sense of place, my moral compass, and my love for life. From Eritrea I found myself in New York City, where my tiny kitchen table instantly became the studio table." - ⁠

For , reviews "You’d Think By Now" currently on view , she writes of 's () work: "Many Western audiences don’t know that Dogon's star constellations predate Western Greek constellations by several thousand years. [Shiferaw's] “Mata Semay” provokes them to reconsider what the West considers a scientific “discovery,” while disregarding Eastern ideas and advancements. A Strange Place to Cast Our Dreams advances a quiet, nuanced political argument, thinking about the geographical and cultural contours of Blackness—and its previously overlooked understandings of the universe."

"’s six-part work with the title 'September 11, 1973 (Coke)' from 1982 is 'about' September 11, a fateful day if there is one; forty years ago for Chile, but more recently for New York City, on the same day and month many years later. The Twin Towers attack has since overshadowed and practically obliterated global memory of the Chilean coup d’état. When September 11 is mentioned, hardly anyone would go back to the images of a bombed La Moneda in Santiago. ⁠

The calendar is a dark calendar. From September 11 on, every day is an eleventh; with the number eleven repeating itself, fixated on itself, growing old—but not changing. A stupefied, paralyzed calendar."⁠

’s new solo exhibition “NOIR & BLANC” is now on view in both spaces of Galerie Lelong & Co.], 13 rue de Téhéran and 38 avenue Matignon, Paris, until July 13.⁠

Inspired by musicians, playwrights, and poets, Plensa often quotes William Blake's sentence « One thought fills immensity » (Proverbs of Hell) which is, in his eyes, a definition of sculpture. This exhibition highlights some key aspects of Plensa's work as a sculptor.⁠

In the gallery's largest space, located on 13, rue de Téhéran, the exhibition presents contrasting large-scale portraits, in pure white marble and black granite. The two colors in opposition create a sort of chess-game articulated by an invisible and silent architecture. But for the artist, this dialogue in black and white also evokes the musicality of piano keys, all related to a different sound of chord but harmonious in their combination.⁠

Pursuing this intricate dialogue in the more intimate space located on 38, avenue Matignon, two portraits of young women, carved out from earthen-hued alabaster blocks, face one another. The white paint covering their faces conveys an element of smoothness in total contrast with the roughness of the stone at the back of their heads. In the adjacent room, a similar tension is echoed in a series of small dark bronze portraits aligned in a row.⁠

Pursuing this dialogue in black and white, inks on Japanese paper, recent engravings and digital prints are presented in the gallery's Salon and Bookshop.⁠

During , the gallery is open on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 7pm.⁠

The gallery presents art that challenges viewers on multiple levels and diversifies dominant understandings of modern and contemporary art. While contemporary Latin American art has only recently begun to receive due recognition in the field, the gallery has been a key proponent of the region for decades, representing some of its most vital figures and presenting museum-quality exhibitions of their work. The gallery is proud to have represented Cildo Meireles, the Estate of Ana Mendieta, and Alfredo Jaar for over twenty years as well as the Estate of Hélio Oiticica for over a decade. Galerie Lelong & Co. has also actively engaged in the cross-generational representation of women artists at a time when women continue to be underrepresented in the art world. Etel Adnan, Zilia Sánchez, and Carolee Schneemann have been exhibiting as early as the fifties or sixties, yet their impressive bodies of work and keen visual languages have just begun to be acknowledged. The gallery also supports several artists known for their socially engaged practices, such as Alfredo Jaar, Yoko Ono, Nancy Spero, and Krzysztof Wodiczko. Contemporary sculpture is another strength of the gallery with artists such as Petah Coyne, Andy Goldsworthy, Jaume Plensa, and Ursula von Rydingsvard continually expanding the boundaries of three-dimensional expression. The gallery has a long history of working closely with prestigious museums and public institutions around the world to support the creation of new work, permanent public art projects, exhibitions both monographic and thematic, and publications on its artists. Founded in Paris in 1981 by Daniel Lelong, Jacques Dupin, and Jean Frémon, the gallery in New York opened in 1985. Directed by Mary Sabbatino, Vice President and Partner, the gallery moved to its present ground-floor location in Chelsea in 2001. Galerie Lelong & Co. is a member of the Art Dealers’ Association of America, the most esteemed organization of art galleries in the United States.
