For its participation in the second edition of Frieze Viewing Rooms on the occasion of Frieze London 2020, Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present new and existing works by a selection of gallery artists including Angela Bulloch, Mel Bochner, Dexter Dalwood, Rachel Howard, Alex Hubbard, Donna Huddleston, Eric N. Mack, France-Lise McGurn, Paulina Olowska, Jim Shaw and Toby Ziegler, amongst others.
Highlights include Dexter Dalwood’s An Inadequate Painted History of Mexico XI, 2020, the sixth painting in his Mexico series, first conceived of during his 2018 residency at Casa Wabi; a new urethane painting by Alex Hubbard; Spider Painters, 2020, a riotous mixed media piece by Paulina Olowska; and Nuclear Family, 2020, by Toby Ziegler, which pays tribute to Jan van Eyck’s iconic Arnolfini Portrait and is presented in tandem with his exhibition at the London gallery. Ahead of his show, Hope Against Hope at the gallery later this autumn, Jim Shaw presents The Light of the West, 2020, which interrogates themes of wealth discrepancy in contemporary American society.
Making their debuts as part of the Simon Lee Gallery programme, Rachel Howard presents Slip Slide Curl Lick, 2020, an abstract painting that captures the artist’s concern with the interaction of chance and chaos in her practice, while Donna Huddleston’s Costume Drama, 2020, is a sumptuous drawing in colour pencil that explores the psychology of theatre. Rounding out the presentation is France-Lise McGurn’s luscious large-format painting, The Sun, 2020. McGurn is currently the subject of her first major museum exhibition outside the UK at Pasquart Kunsthaus in Biel, Switzerland.
A selection of works from the Frieze Viewing Rooms presentation will be available to view at the London gallery throughout Frieze week.
