Luhring Augustine Announces Opening of Tribeca Space on May 1, 2020 and Spring Program
Luhring Augustine celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2020 with the opening of Luhring Augustine Tribeca and a slate of diverse programming, including solo presentations of new groundbreaking work and rigorously-curated historical exhibitions. Luhring Augustine Tribeca is located at 17 White Street and renovated by studioMDA; its inaugural exhibition marks the first major U.S. presentation of Lucia Nogueira. In combination with Luhring Augustine’s Chelsea and Bushwick locations, the Tribeca space will provide a third distinctive platform for the gallery’s dynamic program. In Spring 2020 Luhring Augustine will present:
- Gothic Spirit: Medieval Art from Europe, a second collaboration with the London-based, Sam Fogg, the leading specialist in art of the middle ages, features 30 medieval masterpieces shown for the first time in a contemporary context. The exhibition is on view in Luhring Augustine Chelsea through March 7 and accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
- The gallery’s first presentation of Lee Friedlander, who will be shown together with Christopher Wool, at the Art Dealers Association of America’s annual Art Show, on view at the Park Avenue Armory February 27 – March 1. Iconic Friedlander photographs from the 1960s and 1970s as well as a number of his recent works from the series Signs, Western Landscapes, and The Desert Seen, will be exhibited alongside selected Wool prints, including an important early Untitled portfolio from 1990, several recent etchings, and his monumental Untitled (Billboard Graz), (1992/2019). The double booth is organized in partnership with Fraenkel Gallery, with whom Luhring Augustine co-represents Lee Friedlander.
- An exhibition of new and recent sculptures by Richard Rezac in Chelsea, on view March 14 – April 25, marks the artist’s first solo show with Luhring Augustine, and his first in New York in over a decade. Featuring floor, wall, and ceiling sculptures, Rezac’s objects are exquisitely rendered and engage their surroundings in human scale, blurring the boundaries between design, sculpture, and architecture.
- Frank Auerbach: Selected Works, 1985 – 2016, on view in Chelsea May 1 – June 13, presents the artist’s portraits and landscapes, showcasing his stylistic variances and the range of his subjects across several decades. In conjunction, Luhring Augustine will host an afternoon dedicated to scholarship on the artist’s work featuring a screening of FRANK, a documentary by the artist’s son, Jake Auerbach, as well as a conversation between Catherine Lampert, curator and long-time model for the artist, and the writer Jim Lewis at the Museum of Modern Art on Saturday, May 2.
- The inaugural exhibition at Luhring Augustine Tribeca, on view May 2 – June 13, will showcase a selection of sculptures and works on paper by the late London-based, Brazilian-born Lucia Nogueira. Over the course of her short career she created a deeply compelling and remarkable body of work. Following the acclaimed presentation of Nogueira’s work at the São Paulo Biennial in 2018, the show marks the artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States.
