Pat Steir: Kairos at Lévy Gorvy
Lévy Gorvy’s first New York exhibition with American artist Pat Steir will fill the gallery’s landmark building at 909 Madison Avenue with a suite of five eleven-foot tall oil on canvas paintings and eight smaller-scale works. This is the first New York exhibition of Steir since she joined the gallery in early 2016. Opening September 7th and running through October 21st, Pat Steir: Kairos will showcase paintings that manifest a methodological and philosophical continuity with—and slight formal departure from—her celebrated Waterfall series. Comprising Steir’s first exhibition of new work in over three years, the paintings in Kairos are lush and sweeping in scale, with such titles as Implicit System, Heart, Aporia, Melancholy, Poros, and Trance, capturing the states they evoke. The featured works revisit the dialogue between intuition and accident that has defined Steir’s work since the 1970s, renewing these themes for the present day.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 7th from 6 – 8 p.m.
