Featuring 24 projects this year, the sector presents ambitiously curated exhibitions by both historical and contemporary artists, with 11 galleries completely new to the show.
Highlights from the sector include: a two-person show by US artists Allyson Strafella and Helen Mirra at Galleria Raffaella Cortese; Croy Nielsen’s presentation of work by Austrian artist Elke Silvia Krystufek, who during the 1990s became known for her often provocative performances, videos, photographs and paintings, many of which address the identity of the female artist in a patriarchal society; a solo show of Wallace Berman at galerie frank elbaz, with exceptional artworks and historical archival documents from the
late 1940s to the 1970s; a focus on Cameron Rowland’s ‘Rental Project’ at Essex Street; a selection of never-before-exhibited, spectacular relief paintings by British artist Frank Bowling from the mid-1980s at Hales Gallery; a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Carl Cheng at Philip Martin Gallery; and a presentation of unpublished works by Hudinilson Jr., one of the pioneers of Xerox Art in Brazil, at Galeria Jaqueline Martins.
