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, Robyn O'Neil, Beverly Semmes, Greg Smith, William Villalongo, Ryan Wallace, and Wilmer Wilson IV.

William Villalongo

Black Metamorphosis

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

William Villalongo is well known for working in a variety of media, but perhaps best known for his black velour cut paper pieces. In recent years he has used the device to address the disappearance of the Black Male from contemporary life, the marginalization of people of color, and most recently the transformation and evolution of Black identity. The two recent works featured in this viewing room, Black Metamorphosis 1452 and Near & Far, incorporate symbols of metamorphosis to represent that change. From the void, a swirl of cut flora and fauna, images of crystals, butterflies, and African artifacts coalesce to form a singularly powerful figure. Villalongo’s work considers the depiction of Black bodies throughout history, evoking the experience of the Black diaspora and celebrating Black identity.

Alain Kirili and Ariane Lopez-Huici

The Salon

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

Alain Kirili’s artistic practice has long been interwoven with his love for World Music. In early childhood, Kirili heard the pioneering musician Sidney Bechet give an impromptu performance in his parents' kitchen. Since that time, the artist’s love of music in all forms has inspired his own artistic growth. Along with his wife, Ariane Lopez-Huici, he seeks to convey a sensuality and joie de vivre that he first discovered through this early encounter with improvisational jazz. Both Kirili and Lopez-Huici’s work respectively break down conventional barriers of artistic form through a celebration of spiritual exuberance. Since emigrating to the United States in the late 1970s, the pair have opened up their White Street loft in Tribeca for salon-style performances of freestyle musicians and dancers. The legendary stage, while showcasing the talents of musical and performance artists, is an interdisciplinary collaboration— through their improvised works, the performers directly respond to the art in the space, activating the pieces in a new way. Kirili and Lopez-Huici have been critical in implementing similar programming in their respective exhibitions, including a salon hosted at the Gallery for Kirili’s solo exhibition in September 2019. The kinship and dialogue between artist and performer encapsulate the couple’s resolve to break free from conformity, a willingness to take risks and remain open to inspiration in all forms. This viewing room provides an insider’s glimpse into Kirili and Huici-Lopez’s salons and explores how attributes from these performances have been a source of artistic inspiration for all involved. In the current age of sheltering at home, their salons are an exciting example of the intimacy and magic of sharing art with others.

Marcia Kure

The 111 Project

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

The 111 Project, a limited-edition of 111 masks made in batches of 10 and one unique edition. 100% of proceeds will benefit The Coalition for the Homeless and BronxWorks. There are 11 different color combinations from which to choose. The titles reference archetypes such as the Sheriff and Outlaw, abstract concepts like "Tactical Cranes in a Cotton Candy Colored Sky," and physical reminders of what remains after trauma, "Marks and Scars." There is also one unique mask, "And One," that subverts the functionality of the mask as it is transparent, a simple yet symbolic reminder of this historical moment. Editioned masks are $50 each, shipping charges included. In addition to giving all profits to The Coalition for the Homeless and BronxWorks, 25 handmade fabric masks will be donated to New York-Presbyterian Hospital. All sales are through Susan Inglett Gallery, NYC.

Benjamin Degen

In Waves

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present "In Waves", featuring new work by BENJAMIN DEGEN, from 14 March through 24 July 2020. An opening reception will be held the evening of 14 March from 6 to 8 PM. The artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the Gallery, "In Waves" presents paintings and drawings that continue his exploration of landscape, movement, and observation. In Gallery II are two new sculptures by Alain Kirili entitled Toccata I and Toccata II. Degen’s works employ extensive mark-making and fluid touches to describe a human presence. As the paint darts across the canvas or the ink is actively applied on paper, we move through the landscape while the landscape moves through us. Degen’s act of looking becomes a way for us to see ourselves, within a moment, connected to this world. BENJAMIN DEGEN was born in 1976 in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA from The Cooper Union in 1998. Select exhibitions include “Inner Landscapes,” Galleria Anna Marra, Rome, IT; “Painting as a Radical Form,” Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, IT; and “Greater New York,” MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY; Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, IT; The Nerman MoCA, Overland Park, KS; and more. "In Waves" will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

New York, NY 10011

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.
