Five Galleries to Follow on Artsy
Happy Friday! Here are five galleries to follow for news on past, current, and upcoming exhibitions, and more:
bitforms gallery is devoted to emerging and established artists who embrace new media and contemporary art practice. View their past exhibition, “Voice Array,” where a work by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer translates a visitor’s voice into looped patterns of flashing LED lights.
With over 30 years of historically important exhibitions, Gallery Paule Anglim forged its identity with the California Beat artists, Bay Area Conceptualists, and experimental movements in the art of California. The gallery program also includes national and international artists. Check out their current exhibition titled “Ken Graves: Collages,” which features small paper compositions made from engraving reproductions sourced from journals and books.
ZieherSmith presents technically sound, conceptually grounded artwork, emphasizing contemporary experience with an awareness of historical precedents. Find their current show,“Photo Brut,” on Artsy, which stretches the parameters of vernacular photography—like the beauty salon hairdo example, shown at right.
Founded in 2010, Blain|Southern is an international gallery representing some of the world’s leading contemporary artists, showcasing a diverse range of art through a rich museum-quality exhibition programme in London and Berlin. Set your sights on represented artist Francesco Clemente, whose work the gallery will present in their upcoming exhibition at ArtRio.
Ana Cristea Gallery has established a strong international program introducing emerging artists to a New York audience. If you didn’t catch their “Deadpan” show last spring, revisit the solo exhibition of Nick Nowicki’s work on Artsy.
