David Richard Gallery presents Robert Murray, 3D and 2D Works, an exhibition surveying the sculptor’s abstract artworks from 1968 through 2019 that coincides with the publication of Murray’s first-ever monograph that covers his six-decade career including discussions of his artworks and processes, influences that informed his work and friendships. The monograph, Robert Murray: Sculpture, was written by Jonathan D. Lippincott and published by Design Books. The gallery presentation includes large sculptures, working models on pedestals, sculptural landscape reliefs on the wall, paintings on canvas, paintings on paper and woodblock prints.

Following studies at the University of Saskatchewan’s Regina College School of Art, Murray participated in the Emma Lake Artist’s workshops in the late 1950s under the leadership of Jack Shadbolt, Barnett Newman, John Ferren, Clement Greenberg and others. There, he forged a long-lasting friendship with Newman who shared similar interests in Indigenous art.

In 1960, Murray moved to New York and exhibited with Betty Parsons Gallery and Paula Cooper Gallery, both in New York and David Mirvish Gallery in Toronto. He has had 70 solo exhibitions in museums and galleries through his six-decade career and his artworks included in numerous group exhibitions. Murray represented Canada at the Sao Paulo Biennial in 1969 and was included in multiple Annual and Biennial exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Retrospectives of his work have been held at the Dayton Art Institute, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Centro Culturale Canadese in Rome, and Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey. The National Gallery of Canada hosted a major retrospective in 1999, documenting Murray’s contributions to modern art in Canada and the United States. He was awarded the Order of Canada in 2000 and received the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Grant Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2018.
