UBS Art Gallery in New York City reopens with new exhibition “Reimagining: New Perspectives”
Gallery reopens January 27, 2022 with hybrid in-person and virtual exhibition

Exhibition features selection of recently acquired work from the UBS Art Collection by significant contemporary artists, including Amoako Boafo, Theaster Gates, Sam Gilliam, Tyler Mitchell and Amy Sherald

UBS today announced the UBS Art Gallery will reopen on January 27, 2022 with a new exhibition, Reimagining: New Perspectives, featuring recently acquired artwork from the UBS Art Collection. The exhibition highlights work by internationally respected contemporary artists and showcases a compelling mix of artistic backgrounds, styles, and personal experiences that collectively invites viewers to reimagine the world and expand their perspectives. Concieved as a hybrid exhibition, both in-person and virtual, Reimagining: New Perspectives is on view at 1285 Avenue of the Americas in New York City and online until May 30, 2022.

Reimagining: New Perspectives showcases themes present in the collection, such as identity, memory, culture and social change. Artists including Latifa Echakhch, Theaster Gates, Jeffrey Gibson, Lauren Halsey, Kyungah Ham, Adam Pendleton, and Stanley Whitney, express these themes through geometric abstraction, the visual language of text and graffiti, and the use of unconventional materials. At the same time, they explore current and historical narratives and depict figures from underrepresented communities.

Derrick Adams and Amy Sherald reconsider representation through figurative painting. Hugo McCloud and Theaster Gates, make use of found materials to address socio-economic issues. Do Ho Suh and Wu Chi-Tsing, respectively, reference their domestic and natural environments to explore the passage of time, while Farah Al Qasimi, Sanford Biggers, and Kyungah Ham use traditional art forms in unexpected ways to address themes of ideological, geographical and cultural boundaries.



from January 27, 2022 to May 30, 2022
