Shinique Smith 'Indelible Marks'
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The UBS Art Collection presents ‘Indelible Marks’, an exhibition of new sculptures and paintings by the American artist Shinique Smith at the UBS Art Gallery in UBS’s New York headquarters at 1285 Avenue of the Americas from January 27 –April 10, 2020. For this exhibition, Smith unveils a selection from her newest body of two and three-dimensional works comprised of coded messages in cloth and calligraphy. Smith, who is represented in the UBS Art Collection, has employed recycled clothing, fabrics and objects to construct sculptures, paintings and site-specific installations. Inspired by the vast nature of the things that we create, consume and discard, her works resonate on personal and social scales, operating at the convergence of consumption, displacement and sanctuary. On view alongside Smith’s paintings and sculptures are artworks by other artists in the Collection, which Smith selected, including Brice Marden, Cecily Brown, Cy Twombly, Julie Mehretu and Helen Frankenthaler, that relate to the theme of line and gesture.
The UBS Art Gallery opened in 2019 and celebrated its inaugural season of exhibitions with ‘A History and a Moment: Works from the UBS Art Collection’ and ‘Ed Ruscha VERY: Works from the UBS Art Collection’.
Opening hours: Monday – Friday: 7:00am – 6:00pm.
Venue: UBS Art Gallery
