Press Release

The Armory Show 2021
Javits Center, 429 11th Avenue, New York, NY 10001
September 9-12, 2021

Visit Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in Booth 317 and Platform.

Inspired by the ancient Greek symbol of the phoenix—a bird reborn out of the ashes of its decayed predecessor—Michael Rosenfeld Gallery’s Armory Show exhibition focuses on rebirth and transformation, presenting a selection of museum-quality works by artists central to the gallery’s program. Our booth presentation features paintings, sculpture and works on paper evoking themes of hope and transcendence. Constituting the gallery's first in-person exhibition beyond its own walls since the pandemic began, the selection spans nearly a century of American art, including both abstract and figurative compositions thematically unified by explorations of natural, spiritual and personal reawakening. Artists featured include Benny Andrews, Hannelore Baron, Mary Bauermeister, Romare Bearden, Harry Bertoia, Norman Bluhm, Lee Bontecou, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Ed Clark, Joseph Cornell, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, Beauford Delaney, Claire Falkenstein, Sam Gilliam, Michael Goldberg, Morris Graves, Nancy Grossman, Grace Hartigan, William H. Johnson, Lee Krasner, Yayoi Kusama, Jacob Lawrence, Alfred Leslie, Norman Lewis, Conrad Marca-Relli, Joan Mitchell, Alfonso Ossorio, Agnes Pelton, Jackson Pollock, Richard Pousette-Dart, Betye Saar, Lucas Samaras, Lenore Tawney, Alma Thomas, Bob Thompson, Mark Tobey, Charles White, Charmion von Wiegand and William T. Williams.

Michael Rosenfeld Gallery is also included in The Armory Show’s Platform presentation, a specially curated section of the fair reserved for large-scale or site-specific works. Titled Can you hear the fault lines breathing? and curated by Claudia Schmuckli, Platform includes eight works speaking to the possibilities for unifying divided institutions through empathy. On view from Michael Rosenfeld Gallery is the monumentally scaled Benny Andrews mural titled Circle (Bicentennial Series) (1973). Comprising twelve adjacent canvases and measuring overall 120" x 288" / 304.8 x 731.5 cm, the painting’s composition symbolizes the Black experience in the United States through the portrayal of an individual’s trauma born of America's racist past and present. Surreal in style and rich in interpretive possibility, Circle is an enduring testament to the country’s ongoing struggle toward collective reconciliation and racial justice.
