The gallery’s first solo exhibition of work by artist Ali Banisadr (b.1976, Tehran) opens today. Comprising nine recent paintings, several of which were included in Banisadr’s critically-acclaimed museum show at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, CT, in 2020-21, the exhibition will also include a new large-scale diptych, the first multi-panel work by the artist in six years.
These Specks of Dust coincides with the publication of a major monograph by Rizzoli Electa featuring contributions from Negar Azimi, Robert Hobbs, Joe Lin-Hill, and John Yau. The artist will be signing copies of the book this Saturday, May 8, from 1–3pm at 509 West 27th Street. To RSVP for the event, please email [email protected]
