Acquavella Galleries is pleased to announce its presentations for the 2020 edition of Frieze New York’s online viewing room.
The gallery will present works by El Anatsui, Miquel Barceló, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Xu Bing, Alexander Calder, George Condo, Willem De Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Jacob El Hanani, Urs Fischer, Lucio Fontana, Keith Haring, Damian Loeb, Joan Miro, Richard Prince, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, Tom Sachs, Wayne Thiebaud, Bradley Walker Tomlin, Joaquin-Torres Garcia and Wang Yan Cheng.
Of particular note in the Frieze Viewing Room presentation is a new work by Miquel Barceló titled Rentrer. Over the past four decades, Barceló has explored a variety of styles, from neo-expressionist canvases to colorful still lifes and pale, thickly textured abstract paintings. An artistic nomad, the artist draws inspiration from his time spent in varying locations; though he always returns to his native Mallorca, over the years he has also worked in Barcelona, Portugal, Palermo, Paris, Geneva, New York, the Himalayas, and West Africa. This painting continues one of the several recurring themes in Barceló’s work. Fascinated by the natural world he creates compositions that study the effects of light and the ever-changing colors of the sea. In recent years, Barceló has continued to explore themes inspired by his extensive travels and has completed various major commissions, including the Santísimo chapel of the cathedral in Palma de Mallorca and the dome in the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations at the United Nations in Geneva.
