Margot Bergman

Cups

16 East 55th Street
New York, NY 10022

Anton Kern Gallery is pleased to introduce a special group of works on paper by Margot Bergman, created between the 1980s – 1990s. Historically, teacups and other tabletop vessels have been depicted as static objects within a still life composition. In Bergman's works, the common cup is recast as the subject. Each cup is packed with its own unique personality, bursting with joy and motion. No longer relegated to the background, these wild forms dance with bold color and individualized adornments.

Jim Lambie

Year Unknown

16 East 55th Street
New York, NY 10022

October 29, 2020 - December 5, 2020
Anton Kern Gallery is pleased to present Jim Lambie: ​Year Unknown​ on the gallery’s third floor. The exhibition features new metal boxes and sunglasses sculptures, and is a decidedly intimate one, with small scale pieces and titles that make connections to personally significant cities and streets. Lambie’s work often references music and art, here resonating in a particularly individual way––subtly invoking the album that changed your life; the concert that blew your mind; the painting that made you see the world differently. Together, the works in ​Year Unknown​ offer a contemplative and dynamic journey, one that is both of this moment but also timeless. Lambie’s transformation of humble materials––lenses, aluminum sheets, industrial paints––into these vibrant odes defies their seeming simplicity. The artist encourages the viewer to relish in color, light, and shape––finding meaning in the things we all see that unite us as humans, and the ways we can still find joy in the everyday.

Brian Calvin

Waiting

16 East 55th Street
New York, NY 10022

October 29, 2020 - December 5, 2020
Anton Kern Gallery is pleased to present Waiting, Brian Calvin’s seventh solo exhibition in New York. Faces abound, energizing the first and second floor galleries with hyperbolic color, mosaic eyes, and varnished lips. The cool neutrality of their expressions brings an equal and opposite force; a stillness to the space. Otherworldly as they are, this group of 23 new works cannot be untangled from the time within which they were created. These paintings were born out of the global pandemic, which brought life as normal to a halt.

Tal R

Boy Walking and Cinnamon: Sculptures and Paintings

16 East 55th Street
New York, NY 10022

September 9, 2020 - October 24, 2020
Anton Kern Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Danish artist Tal R. The exhibition will consist of fifteen paintings and twelve bronze sculptures. Tal R is best known for his paintings and their exceptional display of energy and imagination in a colorful and exuberant universe. For the first time, he has also thrown himself into classical bronze sculpture. In Boy Walking and Cinnamon, the viewer can experience the artist’s motifs transformed into three dimensions—a striking parade of figures in patinated bronze. His creatures have arrived in New York with arms and legs, heads and paws, wings and shoes, beaks and eyes. On the first and second floors, alongside the sculptures, Tal R’s paintings unfold to the viewer using a simple compositional device to create his complex, atmospheric worlds. Image: Tal R, "Adidas Boy" 2019, Patinated bronze, 61 3/4 x 10 5/8 x 25 5/8 in (157 x 27 x 65 cm)
