This event has ended.

Almine Rech New York presents The Movement of Material, an exhibition of tapestries by Phyllis Stephens. This is Stephens’ first solo exhibition with the gallery. Stephens has exhibited with the gallery in three group exhibitions, Painting Someone in Shanghai, Un Hiver à Paris, in Paris and the August Presentation in Aspen. The exhibition also includes a special highlight of new paintings by Atlanta-based artist Maurice Evans, from his ‘Fiber Secrets’ series.

Almine Rech New York is excited to host the latest series of tapestries, The Movement of Material, by esteemed Atlanta-based quilter and visual artist Phyllis Stephens. The first solo exhibition Stephens will be partaking in with Almine Rech, this collection of ten new works radiates a vibrant joyous energy that will undoubtedly leave audiences feeling inspired.

At the core of this exhibition is an appreciation for the energy of dance. The series alludes to the artist’s own history and passion for movement. Dancing has been an integral part of her creative process and life, transforming any time and space into one of happiness and inspiration. Reminiscent of family gatherings, time spent with friends, or embracing one’s own self, dance
transforms an instinctual part of the human experience into a beautiful performance of life itself.
