Petzel Gallery

Petzel Gallery Petzel Gallery is an art gallery in New York located at 520 West 25th Street in Chelsea. Petzel also deals in outstanding artworks from the last thirty years.

Friedrich Petzel Gallery first opened its doors in New York City in 1994 on Wooster Street in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood. In 2000, the gallery relocated to 537 West 22nd Street in Chelsea’s newly burgeoning arts district, further expanding in 2006 to include a separate neighboring space dedicated to smaller exhibitions, artists’ projects, and performances. In the fall of 2008, Petzel Gallery an

d Galerie Gisela Capitain joined forces to open Capitain Petzel, which is housed in a glass-encased, architecturally significant 1964 Modernist building from the Socialist era located in Berlin’s Mitte section. This collective effort created the unique opportunity to unite artists represented by both galleries on a global scale, with ambitious exhibitions being presented in tandem with the development of an original program specific to the Berlin-based space. After over a decade on 22nd Street, Petzel Gallery moved into a new location in lower Chelsea at 456 West 18th Street in 2012. In March of 2015, the gallery, now known simply as Petzel, expanded to open a second New York outpost in a townhouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at 35 East 67th Street. Acting as an active platform to consign historical works by artists within the Petzel program in addition to placing focus on curatorial projects and collaborative exhibitions, Petzel’s Upper East Side location promotes the gallery’s long-standing interest in fostering artistic exchange and dialogue. In the Fall of 2022, Petzel opened a new 16,000 square foot flagship location at 520 West 25th in the heart of Chelsea, where the gallery will continue to thrive in its commitment to cultivating a dynamic program dedicated to the innovation, diversity, and ambitions of each of its artists. Petzel’s program is centered around an eclectic group of international contemporary artists, all of whom are critically acclaimed for their distinct creative processes: Yael Bartana, Walead Beshty, Ross Bleckner, Cosima von Bonin, Troy Brauntuch, Hanne Darboven, Simon Denny, Keith Edmier, Thomas Eggerer, Derek Fordjour, Robert Heinecken, Stefanie Heinze, Georg Herold, Charline von Heyl, Dana Hoey, Christian Jankowski, Asger Jorn, Sean Landers, Rezi van Lankveld, Maria Lassnig, Allan McCollum, Rodney McMillian, Sarah Morris, Jorge Pardo, Joyce Pensato, Seth Price, Stephen Prina, Jon Pylypchuk, Willem de Rooij, Pieter Schoolwerth, Dirk Skreber, Emily Mae Smith, John Stezaker, Hiroki Tsukuda, Nicola Tyson, Corinne Wasmuht, Xie Nanxing, Samson Young, and Heimo Zobernig. Each artist has exhibited widely in both museums and galleries throughout the world and are regularly included in international exhibitions such as Documenta, the Whitney Biennial, The Carnegie International, and the São Paulo and Venice Biennals. Books by Petzel artists are available via the gallery’s publishing division, Petzel Publications.

Greetings from 2023! 🏖🏝

Come see us at Booth C25 featuring works by , , , , and many more.

In anticipation of her debut exhibition with the gallery in January 2024, Raphaela Vogel presents a new installation comprised of three works. In a contemporary culture that increasingly consumes decontextualized images, Vogel plays with questions of signification, support, and the assignment of hegemonic value to artistic formats.

Jorge Pardo continues his transformation of familiar objects into artworks with multiple meanings and purposes, with a set of lamps displayed as both sources of illumination and as freestanding sculptures.

A work from Xie Nanxing’s "Shadows of Painting" series furthers the artist’s approach of “马赛克.” A transliteration of the English mosaic, it can also mean pixelation. The gridded format evokes associations with censorship, fragmentation, and post-modern play.

James Little presents "A Matter of Time," an abstract painting continuing the 40-year lineage of Little’s practice, which celebrates the foundational elements that comprise his paintings: patterns, shapes, and the paint itself.

SIDRA BELL and DEREK FORDJOUR
"Arena"
An ensemble movement piece, with performances at 2pm and 5pm daily, Tuesday through Saturday

November 11 – December 16, 2023
520 West 25th Street

Uniquely situated within “SCORE”, an exhibition of Fordjour’s latest offerings in painting, sculpture and installation, "Arena" brings together the worlds of contemporary dance and visual arts in a generous offering, free of charge to the public.

An original ensemble movement piece, "Arena" is jointly composed by renowned choreographer Sidra Bell, founder of Sidra Bell Dance New York and leading contemporary artist, Derek Fordjour. Along with musical accompaniment from Hannah Mayree of The Black Banjo Reclamation Project, five dancers will perform the original choreographic score atop a packed dirt floor, within a built environment designed by the artist. Informed by the artist’s oeuvre, costuming, lighting design, a custom tent and a sculptural seating structure combine to form completely original staging. Informed by a mutual interest in African-American cultural traditions and practices, “Arena” takes inspiration from sources as far ranging as vaudeville, voguing, hip hop culture and expressions of identity.

No ticketing or RSVP is required, although it is highly recommended that audience members arrive thirty minutes prior to start time.

Petzel Gallery is pleased to announce Cuban American artist Jorge Pardo’s eleventh solo show with Petzel, on view from September 9th to October 30th at the gallery’s Chelsea location. Titled All bets are off, the exhibition will feature over 10 new large-scale paintings, a four-piece custom-built couch, and 7 x 5 foot chandelier, among other works.

As is typical of Pardo, these new paintings make one consider the act of looking itself. Each is made up of an accumulation of images, first layered digitally until nearly unrecognizable, and then laser-cut engraved in outline on MDF, and finally hand-painted in acrylic. The resulting objects speak to both sculpture and painting in a signature flamboyant Pardo style. The paintings are abstractions, transformed through the combination of layered imagery, but one cannot call them nonrepresentational, rather, they present distorted forms without the memory of what they represent.

No stranger to maximalism, these thoroughly additive works continue an exploration of layered painting that the artist has been developing over many years. Pulled from a wide range of source material, the initial images (typically two to seven layers per painting) are a nonhierarchical amalgamation of personal photographs, works by other artists he admires, or even past pieces of his own, coming to exist in the space between and amongst each other. Pardo is most interested to play with the possibilities, seemingly limitless in this case, as he puts it: “It’s about making them disappear and turn into something else.” The collective patchwork effect allows for just enough difference from painting to painting that they “start to have a dialogue between each other,” says Pardo. Tied to the location of his studio in Mérida, Mexico and Pardo's own Latinx heritage, the works and painting techniques on view also show strong Mexican and Mayan influences, containing frequent references to the cultural aesthetics and materials of the immediate cultural landscape.

Other components in the show are a giant multi-colored chandelier titled after gallerist Gisela Capitain, an eccentric couch with painted spine (created through the same process as the paintings) which does not always offer an easy seat, and an unrealized photography project from Pardo’s school years in the late 1980s. Pardo offers that the sculptures are needed so that the paintings act as “photobombs” in the background of the installation. These added objects are reflexive in their own ways – the couch’s unique shape allows people sitting on each side to look at each other but requires them to lay down to do so. The unrealized work is a slide carousel that Pardo had originally planned to apply to Yale graduate school with but never followed through. The application requested candidates to submit their portfolio, yet Pardo wondered, what would happen if you applied with an actual work of art? Instead making a pinhole camera from the carousel with pictures being captured on each slide while traveling within the device.

As a whole, the show touches on theories of integration and migration – borrowing from another curious overlap: that of the illusion and movement through space developed in Hans Hoffman’s “push-pull” painting method and sociologist Everett Lee’s Push-Pull theory of geographical migration amongst communities which has helped to define the levels and patterns of human integration. From reusing and repurposing historical material in the canon of painting; to interweaving various forms of image-making; or considering the screen - of the computer, our phones - as a visual problem to work through and from; and the even more human element of relational interaction amongst strangers – Pardo’s goal is to make people engage in the act of looking. The works in All bets are off catch viewers in that process, requiring one to be aware of and rethink how to approach simple acts we do all the time – seeing, sitting, thinking. In doing so, the opportunity for a subtle and accessible confrontation of the history of painting and picture-making itself arises.

Alongside the exhibition, there will be an accompanying booklet housing a unique interview between Jorge Pardo and curator Daniela Pérez which follows a format akin to the paintings themselves: developed by repurposing questions originally asked of other artists and posed anew directed to Pardo. As well as the debut of the artist’s newest monograph: Jorge Pardo: Public Projects and Commissions, 1996–2018, a highly anticipated publication that documents over 20 of Pardo’s public works in one volume for the first time. Includes text contributions by Emma Enderby, Maja Hoffman, and Ian Volner, as well as presents twelve of the artist’s never-before-seen “unrealized projects,” discussed in conversation with curator and art historian Hans Ulrich Obrist – available for purchase at the gallery.

📯 PAGE (NYC) AT PETZEL📯

September 8 – October 30, 2021
35 East 67th Street, New York, NY
. . . .

Petzel is pleased to present PAGE (NYC), a collaboration with the Tribeca-based gallery. The exhibition debuts new works by Magnus Andersen, Ravi Jackson, Frieda Toranzo Jaeger, Dani Leder, Dana Lok, Leigh Ruple, Lauren Satlowski, Agnes Scherer, and Katja Seib. On view at Petzel’s Upper East side location, this presentation marks the first time Petzel has invited a New York gallery to organize an exhibition in one of its spaces.

Curated by Lucas Page, owner of PAGE (NYC), the show brings together a fresh mix of emerging voices from the international scene. Systematic approaches find poetic harmonies in the depiction of refined structures and figurative subject matter. Experiments in pictorial processes devise an extrasensory world with a range of surprising results and unexpected combinations. This group has grit and dynamism, making it happen here and now.

The works in the exhibition are a testament to the power and glamour of image. An array of graphic and painterly effects are both inventive and technical, producing an uncanny synthesis of supernatural energies. This group runs the spectrum of hyper visibility, each projecting a unique strain of juicy saturation. The infrared sensors and telekinetic pings jam the airwaves in this composite universe.

Via The Broad! Curator Ed Schad discusses artist 's work "Unknown Quantities of Light (Part IV)" (1988).

Bleckner's painting blends abstraction with recognizable symbols to create meditations on perception, transcendence, and loss. As the AIDS health crisis began to take its toll on society and on many of Bleckner’s friends and colleagues, his paintings became elegies to specific losses suffered and reflections on bereavement. Bleckner’s Unknown Quantities of Light (Part IV) shows how absorptive abstraction can be and can take up our concerns and lives.
