Richard Gray Gallery Represents Theaster Gates
Richard Gray Gallery is pleased to announce representation of Theaster Gates. A solo exhibition of work by Gates will be presented by Richard Gray Gallery at Frieze New York 2018. Theaster Gates’ expansive practice is deeply engaged in material and cultural preservation, especially as it relates to historical and contemporary power dynamics. From his work reactivating archives, such as those of the magazines Jet and Ebony, to recovering and repurposing buildings on Chicago’s South Side, Gates also works in ceramics, painting, sculpture, installation, music, and performance. Gates has previously collaborated with Richard Gray Gallery as both artist and curator: in 2016, he was the subject of a solo exhibition and in 2014 he organized a group exhibition of artists from the Black Artist Retreat.
