Alexander Gray Associates presents recent drawings, models, and sculptures by Siah Armajani from his ongoing “Tomb Series” (1972–2016). The Series pays tribute to philosophers, activists, poets, and writers who have informed and inspired Armajani’s art and ideology. This is the second exhibition of his Tombs at the Gallery, and the group of works on view highlight his interest in the way these cultural figures influence one another in life, death, and output.

September 8, 2016 - October 15, 2016
Alexander Gray Associates presented Joan Semmel: New Work, an exhibition of recent paintings and drawings. In this body of work, Semmel explores a central motif in her practice: her own likeness as a site to consider the state of the aging female body as an active, potent vessel for life and art; or in her words, “used as a powerful expression of the artist’s political or emotional intentions.”

Harmony Hammond
510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

May 19, 2016 - June 25, 2016
Alexander Gray Associates presented its second exhibition of work by Harmony Hammond (b.1944), including paintings, monotypes and ink drawings dating from 2014 to the present. A pioneer of feminist and queer discourse, Hammond’s earliest feminist work combined gender politics with post-minimal concerns of materials and process, frequently occupying a space between painting and sculpture—a focus that continues to this day. Her thick near-monochrome paintings of the last decade participate in the narrative of modernist abstraction; at the same time they insist on an oppositional discourse of feminist and queer content. Their focus on materiality and the indexical, suggesting topographies of body derive from and remain in conversation with her feminist work of the 1970s.

Hassan Sharif
510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

April 7, 2016 - May 14, 2015
Alexander Gray Associates presented recent work by Hassan Sharif (b.1951), featuring sculptures and woven assemblages. Recognized as a pioneer of conceptual art and experimental practice in the United Arab Emirates over the past four decades, Sharif has transgressed traditional frameworks for art making by extending his practice to performance, installation, drawing, painting, and assemblage that integrates ordinary objects as the primary medium. The tapestry-like works in this exhibition are conceptually linked by their relationship with the human body and social structures.

Regina Silveira
510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

February 18, 2016 - March 26, 2016
Alexander Gray Associates presented an exhibition of work by multimedia artist Regina Silveira. 
The works on view emphasized Silveira’s use of graphic visual language through accumulation and skewed perspective to transform our perception of spaces. Throughout more than four decades, Silveira, a critical figure 
in Brazilian conceptual art, has investigated the tension between movement and spatial perspective, threading political meaning into installations that respond to specific sites.

Coco Fusco
510 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

January 9, 2016 - February 6, 2016
Alexander Gray Associates presented an exhibition of work by interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco, screening for the first time together a survey of her seminal videos created over the past two decades. Premiering was her latest installation Confidencial, Autores Firmantes (2015), which examines Cuba’s systematic censorship of key literary voices during the 1970s. Featuring works from the early 1990s through the present, the exhibition focused on Fusco’s critical examination of the politics of identity, military power, the history of racial thought, and post-revolutionary Cuba.
