Mix Frieze

HG Contemporary is pleased to announce Mix Frieze a group exhibition of featured HG Contemporary artists below and select blue chip work to celebrate the launch of Frieze Art Fair that will run from Thursday May 2, 2019 through May 7, 2019.

Franz Klainsek
Franz Klainsek is a self-taught American artist of Cuban and Austrian descent. His work is physical and emotional - it resides in the space between body and mind, feeling and thought. Franz Klainsek addresses societal programming and its systematic effect on the human mind. His large scale sculptures and installations often include references to man’s struggle to find Truth within a "programmed" society.

Philip Tsiaras
Philip Tsiaras is a Greek artist who lives and works in New York City. Since 1974 he has had more than 80 solo exhibitions and works across a broad range of mediums including painting, photography, glass, ceramic, and bronze. Tsiaras’ work is collected worldwide by corporations, private museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and many others.

Retna
Based in Los Angeles, Retna Marquis Lewis pays tribute to street art and The Wu Tang Clan in choosing his moniker “Retna.” He combines spray-painting with classical technique to create text-based imagery sometimes paired with streams of sounds to master a multi-sensory experience. Each block of text is a sophisticated system of hieroglyphs, calligraphy and illuminated lettering with influences extracted from Arabic, Egyptian, Hebrew, Anglo-Saxon and Native American mythologies.

Kevin Abosch
Kevin Abosch is an Irish conceptual artist known for his works in photography, sculpture, installation and film. Abosch's work addresses the nature of identity, value and human currency and has been exhibited throughout the world. In 2015, Abosch’s photo of a potato, "Potato #345," sold for over one million USD, making it one of the most expensive photographs in the world.

Mehwish Iqbal
Mehwish Iqbal works across painting, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, sculpture and installation art. Her work stands as a provocative exploration of womanhood, courage, liberation, and power. She experiments with various themes involving migration, the influx of refugees and migrant diaspora, monopoly of power-play, commodification of human agency, hybrid identities, unfolding fragile and the complex state of individuals.

Arturo DiModica
Arturo DiModica is an Italian artist, born in Vittoria, Sicily who became a naturalized U.S. citizen. He is best known for creating his world-famous Charging Bull sculpture which he dropped illegally during the middle of the night in December 1989 outside of the New York Stock Exchange as his gift to the American people. Having arrived in the U.S c.1970 penniless, he had risen up to success and felt indebted to America for everything it had enabled for him. DiModica worked the majority of his life completely alone outside of the formal art market. Therefore, despite creating one of the most recognisable sculptures in the entire history of art, relatively few works are in private hands.

Robert Rauschenberg
Robert Rauschenberg was an American painter and graphic artist whose early works anticipated the pop art movement. Rauschenberg is well-known for his "Combines" of the 1950s, in which non-traditional materials and objects were employed in innovative combinations. Rauschenberg was both a painter and a sculptor and the Combines are a combination of both. He also worked with photography, printmaking, papermaking, and performance.

Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol was an American artist, director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, advertising, and celebrity culture that flourished by the 1960s, and span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture.

AICAN + Ahmad Elgammal
Modeled from psychological theories of the brain’s response to aesthetics, AICAN is a complex algorithm that draws from art historical knowledge and a mandate to create something new, enabling it to make new artwork without human intervention. Through this combination of knowledge and its independent creative process, AICAN facilitates a new way for artists of the past and present to engage in dialogue across centuries of art history. AICAN was created by Ahmad Elgammal of Rutgers University.
