SUSAN INGLETT GALLERY is located in the heart of Chelsea in a ground floor space at 522 West 24th Street. The gallery provides representation for a range of artists, emerging to established, working across media. Continuing a pattern established early in its history, the gallery consciously develops a program of surprising juxtapositions within and between exhibitions alternating between single artist shows, curated group exhibitions and historical exhibitions. Gallery artists have appeared recently in the Hammer Biennial, Paris Triennale, Whitney Biennial, the Venice Biennale, the Carnegie International and Greater New York at P.S. 1 among many international venues. 

Susan Inglett represents Benjamin Degen, Eric Fertman, Hope Gangloff, Maren Hassinger, George Herms, Marcia Kure, Allison Miller, Shaun O’Dell, Robyn O'Neil, Beverly Semmes, Greg Smith, William Villalongo, Ryan Wallace, and Wilmer Wilson IV.

Beverly Semmes: Red

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

January 30, 2020 - March 7, 2020
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Beverly Semmes: Red, the artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery, from 30 January to 7 March 2020 with an opening reception the evening of 30 January from 6 to 8 PM. The exhibition presents new works on canvas in Semmes’ on-going Feminist Responsibility Project (FRP). Additionally, Beverly Semmes will be our featured artist this year at the ADAA Art Show, Booth D-18 from 27 February to 1 March 2020 at the Park Avenue Armory. A small zine of cartoons altered by the artist titled Pinkie will be made available both at the Gallery and at the Art Show. "Semmes initiated FRP in the early 2000’s. A sculptor by training, she has long used massive scale, electric color and vessel forms— such as dresses, pots, and chandeliers— to mess with authority. Petunia filled a cathedral nave in the Netherlands with a lake of pink chiffon that pooled as if it were the skirt of the performer who sat in attendance. FRP newly expands the set of operations of this larger body of work. Think of me as a rogue censorship bureau, says Semmes, (whose father was an FBI agent) of the baseline project. Drawing on pages of vintage Penthouse, Hustler and other gentleman’s magazines, Semmes exposes the exploitive, titillating and awkward poses as much as she covers them up. Simply blotting out sex workers is not an option. Super Puritan and Bitch are Semmes’ FRP alter egos." - Ingrid Schaffner, The Guide, Carnegie International 57th edition, 2018. This exhibition features a series of painted canvas works, altered and inked in a revolutionary red, a continuation of the artist’s project presented at the recent 57th Carnegie International. For the Carnegie, Semmes created new life-size FRP paintings, by transferring and enlarging a selection of images from 1990's era pornographic magazines. At this scale, the welter of applied cover-up marks become bold, painterly gestures, aggressively creating an intimate physicality. Operating as a censor to the magazine page nudity, the artist wields paint to shield these women as they pose and perform. The partial concealment of the underlying image amplifies the highly constructed tableaux; the gaze creates objectification of the female body by camera and audience alike. Semmes presents this discord not as a result of two poles that are mutually exclusive, but rather as a phenomenological grey space in which queries regarding female sexuality take new form. BEVERLY SEMMES was born in Washington, DC. She received an MFA from the Yale School of Art in addition to a BA and BFA from the Boston Museum School, Tufts University. A selection of works by Semmes was exhibited in the 57th Carnegie International, curated by Ingrid Schaffner. Later this year, she will have a solo exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum, Aspen curated by Max Weintraub, and will participate in the group exhibition, “Witch Hunt,” curated by Connie Butler and Anne Ellegood, at the Hammer Museum and the ICA, Los Angeles. Additional solo exhibitions include the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, DC; the ICA Philadelphia; the MCA Chicago; the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio; the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; and an exhibition co-organized by the Grinnell College Museum of Art, Grinnell and the Frances Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs. Her work is included in the museum collections of the Albright Knox Art Gallery, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art among others. Beverly Semmes: Red will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

December 6, 2019 - January 25, 2020
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present By / Buy Me, a group exhibition curated by David Platzker, from 6 December 2019 to 25 January 2020. By / Buy Me explores the artist as self-publisher of artworks in editions — multiples, prints, posters, wallpaper, artists’ books and other goods that interrogate, parody or question the commodification of art. Since Duchamp produced his first Boîte-en-valise, containerizing his oeuvre and assuming the mantle of traveling salesman, artists have consistently advanced new means of self-publishing and subverting, if not distorting, the traditional role of artist as maker tied to the middleman of publisher and dealer. By cutting out these actors, artists could work untethered to produce works on their own terms and enjoy the benefits of selling directly to consumers. As a mantra, By / Buy Me likewise recognizes that many of the works in the show were intended by the artists to be ephemeral, temporary and transitory objects that have a use value beyond that of static artworks that sit upon their asses in museums (or collectors' homes). These works provoke, question and call to action new conditions within which artists can insert them into the flux of commerce. Artists featured include Tauba Auerbach, Fiona Banner, Lynda Benglis, Paul Chan, Claude Closky, Hans-Peter Feldmann, General Idea, Gilbert & George, the Guerrilla Girls, Dan Graham, Jenny Holzer, Reverend Jen, KAWS, Yayoi Kusama, Louise Lawler, Cary Leibowitz, George Maciunas, Piero Manzoni, Jonathan Monk, Takashi Murakami, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Richard Prince, Edward Ruscha, Tom Sachs, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Ben Vautier, Visitor Design, Kelley Walker, Robert Watts, Hannah Wilke, and Mathieu Mercier as Marcel Duchamp. The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street, Tuesday to Saturday, 10 AM to 6 PM. For additional information please contact Susan Inglett Gallery at 212 647 9111 or info@inglettgallery.com. The gallery will be closed for the holiday beginning 22 December 2019 and reopening 2 January 2020.
