LOKAL_30 AT FRIEZE NEW YORK 2017
Frieze New York is one of the world’s leading art fairs, featuring nearly 200 of the world’s contemporary art galleries. It is organized by the media and events company Frieze, home to four publications (frieze magazine, frieze d/e, Frieze Masters Magazine and Frieze Week), three international art fairs (Frieze London, Frieze New York, and Frieze masters), programs of courses and talks at Frieze academy, and finally frieze.com–the definitive resource for contemporary art and culture.
The Polish Cultural Institute New York has been supporting the presence of Polish galleries in New York as a part of its mission, helping them to establish and reinforce relationships with world art market.
The Warsaw-based gallery, lokal_30 will showcase Incarnations featuring works by three generations of artists: nestor of Polish conceptual art Natalia LL, Zuzanna Janin, established sculptor, installation and video artist, and young but already successful painter Ewa Juszkiewicz. The exhibit will include vintage prints of Natalia LL from her famous series Consumer Art and “TAK / YES”. Zuzanna Janins photographs and video work are centered on the universalization of her own biography and experience like boxing practice, which she had previously known only from the stories of her grandfather. These works will be juxtaposed with static figurative oil paintings by Ewa Juszkiewicz, who reinterprets the master painters classic genre of portraiture by replacing faces of the portrayed women with polypore, hair, and white canvas.
The participation of lokal_30 at Frieze Art Fair New York is supported by the Polish Cultural Institute New York and Culure.pl.
