Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is pleased to announce the inclusion of David Finn’s Crazed Duck, 1984, in the groundbreaking Something Possible Everywhere: Pier 34 NYC 1983-1984 at the Hunter College Art Galleries.
As the gallery approaches its one-year anniversary, Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is hosting an exhibit of one of America’s most iconic artists. “Frank Stella Circuits Prints” will be on view (and available for purchase) from May 19 to July 16 at the Upper East Side gallery. An artist proof of Pergusa Three, perhaps the most celebrated print the artist has ever made, will be included in the six-print show.
A lot has been said on the idea of “black genius” of late. In February, at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, Dr. Jordana Saggese, Kim Drew, Dr. David Clinton Wills and Juliana Huxtable were part a symposium titled “Basquiat and Contemporary Queer Art,” focusing on Jean-Michel Basquiat as a symbol of black genius. In March, critic Jason Parham, in a review of Kanye West’s Life of Pablo (2016) and Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered (2016) for Fader, called “On the Occasion of Black Genius,” wrote at length about the concept.
Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is honored to be able to exhibit the complete set of the six prints Frank Stella made for the Exotic Bird Series in 1977. The exuberant lithograph/screenprints of the Exotic Bird Series were based on six configurations of the metal-relief-paintings by the same name. The more expansive and loosened drawing style and larger scale introduced in the Exotic Bird prints, qualities that would continue to characterize the later prints, were inherited from Stella's work in painting.
