We are pleased to announce our participation in the 2010 Frieze Art Fair. The gallery will be located in booth E15.
At this year’s installment of Frieze, Team will exhibit works by several gallery artists, rather than mounting a solo project as we have done in the past. The artists are Slater Bradley, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Ryan McGinley, Dawn Mellor, Banks Violette, and Stanley Whitney.
Slater Bradley continues his Doppelganger series and his interests in the archival by printing a photograph that he had taken ten years ago in Times Square. By lovingly embellishing this large image with moon gold leaf, Bradley reanimates a moment from his own artistic prehistory, connecting his ongoing project with its genesis. Gardar Eide Einarsson will be represented by a new text painting rendered in black, white, and gray. His text-less abstractions based on book jackets of classic modernist novels have given way to an investigation of the graphical qualities of the language itself. Ryan McGinley will show color photographs from his most recent road trip, along with black and white studio portraits of models posing with exotic animals. Dawn Mellor’s ongoing Vile Affections series has grown to incorporate portraits of Mia Farrow, Isabelle Huppert and Dustin Hoffman, to name a few. Mellor’s process of appropriating-rendering-defacing continues to exhibit equal measures of sensitive mastery and violent rage. Banks Violette’s first large-scale text based installation includes a three-meter square steel scaffold displaying the words The End. A second scaffold supports a grid of lights, which serves to illuminate a billboard seemingly created to announce an impending apocalypse. We are also pleased to be exhibiting a painting by the 64-year-old Stanley Whitney alongside the younger artists who help form the basis of the gallery’s program. A six-foot-square painting, in his signature grammatical play of blocks of color and horizontal bands, will go a long way towards animating the stand.
