CHANNING HANSEN : MORPHOGENESIS
Nov 16 - Dec 21, 2018
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new, large-scale works by American artist Channing Hansen. Hansen's paintings comprise abstract, hand-knitted constructions stretched over wooden frames. Developing his longstanding interest in the crossover between craft, science and technology, this new body of textiles is the most technically complex the artist has made to date. The exhibition takes the late work of Alan Turing, WWII code breaker, and father of computer science, as its inspiration. Turing's theory of ‘morphogenesis' hypothesised how patterns and structures such as stripes, spots, and spirals can form spontaneously in nature through genetic abnormalities. Inspired by Turing's biological principle, the design of Hansen's paintings in the exhibition are produced by a unique computer algorithm that is able to generate potentially infinite combinations of colour, fibre, and knit.

DEBORAH ROBERTS : IF THEY COME
Jun 7 - Jul 20, 2019
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present American artist Deborah Roberts’ first solo exhibition at the gallery and in Europe. Combining collage with mixed media, Roberts' figurative works depict the complexity of black subjecthood and explore themes of race, identity and gender politics. The exhibition is accompanied by a new publication featuring an essay by Daniella Rose King, Whitney-Lauder Curatorial Fellow at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Roberts will have a major solo exhibition at The Contemporary Austin, Texas in September 2020.
