Ground Floor

Through a range of media – painting, architectural installation, digital prints, and critical writing – Peter Halley’s work has illuminated the structures of social space and communication that shape our experience of contemporary life. For his second solo exhibition at Greene Naftali, Halley presents Heterotopia II, the latest in a series of large-scale installations exploring the relationship between painting and architectural space. Halley has created a multi-colored, labyrinthine structure in the ground floor gallery housing eight new shaped-canvas paintings that playfully nods to motifs in the work of architects Peter Eisenmann, Hans Hollein, Luis Barragán, and Louis Kahn. Halley’s installation, with its candy-colored surfaces, is a postmodern reverie on neoplasticism and modernist geometry, founded on a tension between rationalist geometry and lyrical color.

A Carbon Neutral Initiative

This fall, Peter Halley is launching #artworldoffset, a carbon neutral initiative to urge other artists and galleries to join him in making the art industry carbon neutral. Peter Halley Studio now offsets its carbon consumption, including heating, electricity, materials, as well as airplane and automobile travel though the Gold Standard Foundation. Artists Leo Villareal and Keltie Ferris have already joined the effort and made their studios carbon neutral. To learn more about this initiative and how to join, visit
