David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Swedish artist Mamma Andersson. On view at 519 and 525 West 19th Street in New York will be the artist’s latest body of paintings alongside two murals, made especially for this presentation.
In the exhibition HERE/NOW, Artipelag would like to take a stand for the physical meeting between artwork and the viewer. The title of the exhibition refers to artist Barnett Newman’s praised 1948 essay, The Sublime is Now. In the essay, Newman propagates the idea that the meeting between contemplator and artwork should be like a meeting between two people, wherein the relationship is based on a profound dialogue.

Until the late 19th century, painters like Lotto, Holbein and Delacroix restricted themselves to drawing tapestry cartoons or including Oriental carpets in their pictures. Over the course of the 20th century, however, the European avant-garde revolutionized textile art and practice; artists began weaving their own rugs, inspired by works from earlier periods or drawing upon ethnic and geometric motifs.

Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Mamma Andersson. Andersson, born in 1962, paints complex compositions that bring together a variety of sources including Nordic figurative painting, folk art and contemporary iconography. She juxtaposes thick impasto and loosely washed areas to create dreamlike and expressive vistas yet also allows reality to enter her paintings in the form of the commonplace.

En utställning curerad av Karin Mamma Andersson
Som betraktare kan en särskild glädje vara att få gå in i konstnärs bildvärld, och låta sig ryckas med av dess stämning. Ibland kan ett uttryck och ett formspråk vara så starkt och egenartat, att man börjar se verkligheten litet annorlunda, sedan man tagit del av det. Man har berikats.
