Norman Lewis: The Last Decade at Frieze New York 2019
May 2 - May 5
Norman Lewis: The Last Decade will be presented in Booth JAM3, one of seven booths dedicated to the historical significance of the non-profit New York arts organization Just Above Midtown (JAM), its founder Linda Goode Bryant, and the artists she championed. This special section has been curated by Franklin Sirmans, Director, Pérez Art Museum Miami as a tribute to the pioneering gallery. Michael Rosenfeld Gallery’s solo presentation of the work of Norman Lewis (1909-1979) will feature paintings and works on paper created during the last decade of the artist’s life, reflecting two distinctive elements of Lewis’ abstract expressionist practice–calligraphic and atmospheric abstraction. A 1973 painting–one of two exhibited in the inaugural 1974 JAM exhibition Synthesis: A combination of parts or elements into a complex whole–will be on view in the booth, along with works from the same period that typify Lewis’ signature abstractions and masterful use of color, line and form. Michael Rosenfeld Gallery proudly represents the Estate of Norman Lewis and this exhibition has been organized with their cooperation.
