PREVIEW: Frank Stella: What You See Is What You See, Shapero Modern

To mark the launch of the Maddox Street Gallery, Shapero Modern will hold the first comprehensive UK exhibition of Frank Stella works since 2013.

Going on display to the public from the 28th January, the exhibition will cover the period 1967 – 2001, showing the progression of Stella’s prolific career.

This new exhibition will be a survey of Frank Stella’s prints and works on paper bringing the experimentation in his printmaking, his love of colour and his enduring relationship with abstraction to a new audience.

Talking about the display, Gallery Director Tabitha Philpott-Kent said: “This exciting move for Shapero Modern solidifies the gallery as a distinct entity from our Rare Books counterpart. While we continue to work closely
together, the Maddox Street space provides the opportunity to present a bold new exhibition programme. Our opening exhibition of works by Frank Stella offers the rare chance to explore this highly renowned artist.”

The gallery can be seen in advance of the Stella show with an exhibition of Pop Art and Op Art, showcasing a collection of prints, paintings and sculptures that capture the Post-War moment. These works were born at a moment in art history that recast public conception of the entire art
market through radical shifts in both subject matter and medium, and at the heart of the show are prints by Lichtenstein, Warhol and Frank Stella, as well as sculptures by Vasarely.

Under the curatorial eye of Philpott-Kent, Shapero Modern will run a programme of six exhibitions per year, from both primary and secondary market artists, including collaborations with contemporary living artists as well as masters of 20th-century Post War prints and works on paper.
