Jablonka Maruani Mercier Gallery is proud to present Peter Halley's 6th solo show.
For over twenty-five years, Peter Halley's geometric paintings have been engaged in a play of relationships between what he calls "conduits","prisons" and "cells" –icons that reflect the increasing geometrization of social space in the world in which we live.
Halley holds a BA from Yale University (1975) and an MFA from the University of New Orleans (1978). He has taught at Columbia University, UCLA, and the School of Visual Arts. Since 2002, Halley has been the Director of Graduate Studies in Painting and Printmaking at the Yale University School of Art. He has had solo exhibitions in Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Stedelijk Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His works are included in major international collections, such as Tate Modern, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
For the last 3 years, no less than 6 museums are honoring Peter: Florence Griswold CT USA, Santa Barbara Museum of Art USA, Jena Germany, Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de St-Etienne, Shrin Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Kunst Haus Wien.
