Lisson Gallery at Frieze New York 2019
22 April 2019
Lisson Gallery's presentation at Frieze New York this year will focus on two artists: Leon Polk Smith and Pedro Reyes. Leon Polk Smith (1906-1996), considered one of the founders of the hard-edge style of Minimal, abstract art, rose to prominence in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his distinctive shaped canvas series — the Correspondences. The booth will highlight these large vibrant paintings, marking this pivotal moment in his career. Alongside this, the presentation will feature a series of new volcanic stone and Carrara marble sculptures by the Mexico City-based artist Reyes, an artist whose practice takes inspiration from both modern and ancient sources.
