What to See at ADAA’s The Art Show 2020
Whitewall spoke with ADAA Executive Director Maureen Bray about which booths to keep an eye on, as well as first-time participants like David Kordansky Gallery, Gallery Wendi Norris, and more.
WW: The fair will also feature some notable thematic and group exhibitions. Could you share a couple highlights?
MB: For the same reasons that The Art Show always features so many solo presentations, it also consistently includes thoughtful group and dual presentations, that offer new perspectives on art historical movements, or a group of artists whose work shares a thematic connection – this year being no exception. Some highlights of the 2020 edition include a joint presentation by Fraenkel Gallery and Luhring Augustine examining the use of text in the practices of Lee Friedlander and Christopher Wool; Venus Over Manhattan’s celebration of renowned art dealer Phyllis Kind and her eponymous galleries in New York and Chicago; and Jonathan Boos’s exhibition Psychological Realism, which features a range of works exploring psychological narratives through realistic imagery.
