This event has ended.

Vito Schnabel Gallery presents Trey Abdella: Under the Skin, the gallery’s debut exhibition with the Virginia-born, New York-based artist. Under the Skin is part of a two-venue presentation, coinciding with the debut of a major installation by the artist at David Lewis Gallery in New York.

Featuring eleven new works that bridge the mediums of painting, sculpture, assemblage, and sometimes introducing operating mechanical elements, Abdella’s exhibition demonstrates his category-defying exploration of American culture and its collision of the familiar and the uncanny, the humorous and the unsettling. A sly storyteller, Abdella cultivates a relatable nostalgia in his works, drawing upon life’s wholesome trivialities and mundane aspects, electrifying them with a heightened sense of drama and dread. Bold in scale, unapologetically illustrative, and fervently colored, his latest works on view at Vito Schnabel Gallery narrate a story about the pitfalls and miseries to be found along the path of the American dream.

Trey Abdella (b. 1994, Manassas, VA) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York (2016) and his MFA from the New York Academy of Art (2019).

Abdella’s work has been exhibited internationally. Recent solo shows include the X Museum, Beijing, China (2022); KÖNIG GALERIE, (Seoul, South Korea, 2021; Berlin, Germany, 2020); and T293 Gallery, Rome, Italy (2021; 2019). Selected group exhibitions include Vito Schnabel Gallery & Sotheby’s, Los Angeles, CA (2022); Anat Ebgi, Los Angeles, CA (2021); and Nino Mier, Los Angeles, CA (2020).
