Yinka Shonibare MBE explores issues of race and class through painting, sculpture, print, photography and film. We will exhibit Shonibare’s first print project with the Alan Cristea Gallery at The Armory Show. Cowboy Angels, 2017, is a series of five woodcuts incorporating batik collage. The launch of Shonibare’s new prints coincides with the unveiling of a new public sculpture, Wind Sculpture (SG) I, in Central Park on 7 March. The 23-foot work, installed by the Public Art Fund, will be the artist’s first outdoor sculpture in New York.
We will present drawings by British artist Emma Stibbon made in response to a residency in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park where she lived and worked amongst the fabled, sacred volcanoes of Kilauea and Mauna Loa. The large monochromatic drawings, which depict volcanic features in a stark Hawaiian landscape are made using ink, carbon and volcano ash.
Displayed alongside these works will be a monumental triptych by British artist Ian Davenport who is driven by an enduring fascination with the materiality and process of painting and printmaking. His largest print to date measuring over 5ft by 8ft, Poured Triptych Etching: Ambassadors (After Holbein), 2017, is an abstract interpretation of the colours used in Holbein’s famous painting, The Ambassadors, 1533. Davenport, who exhibited a painting made up of over 1,000 stripes, measuring 45 metres in width at the 2017 Venice Biennale, is currently working towards a major solo exhibition which will take place at Dallas Contemporary, Texas, in September 2018.
Prints and editions on display by other contemporary artists include, Michael Craig-Martin, Jim Dine, Richard Long, and David Nash.

We will also have on display prints from one of Dieter Roth’s best-known series of art works, Six Piccadillies, 1969-70. Inspired by a postcard of the famous London landmark, Piccadilly Circus, Roth enlarged and reproduced the image as a double-sided photolithograph, then transformed it through various interventions. These prints will be shown alongside several unique works by Roth exploring the same theme including, Reihenbild (Covered Piccadilly x9), 1968-70, which is formed of nine unique screenprints mounted as one large image.
These works will be shown together with the last series of hand-painted prints ever made by Howard Hodgkin, and classic works by Josef Albers, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, and Tom Wesselmann.
