Dear Friends and Colleagues,
2022 was a big year for De Buck Gallery. We had many wonderful shows both in New York and at our recently opened space in Saint-Paul de Vence.
Our artists had noteworthy exhibitions. Stephen Towns opened his major museum exhibition Stephen Towns: Declaration & Resistance at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, a traveling exhibition that will open for its final leg at the historic Reynolda House Museum of American Art in February 2023. Artist Devan Shimoyama continued his Tarot Series, which was presented at an exhibition at the Katzen Arts Center in Washington, D.C., and which we showed at Untitled Art (our booth was among Artsy’s top picks of the fair!), and which will be presented in full at an exhibition at CAC Malaga in Malaga, Spain, during the summer of 2023.
The space in Saint-Paul de Vence saw several shows and a lot of great activity over the summer. Annan Affotey was our artist in residence, which culminated in an exhibition of work inspired by the storied location in the Côte-d’Azur. Zak Ové’s exhibition was a highlight of the International Conference on James Baldwin 2022. Philip Colbert’s works featuring his lobster persona descended on the gallery, which also featured a series of his renditions of Warhol’s Flower Study works. We also had exhibitions of new paintings by Belgian artist Koen van den Broek, and new Robot Paintings by British art duo Rob and Nick Carter.
We featured exhibitions of new paintings in solo exhibitions of Gommaar Gilliams, Sheena Rose, REWA and Megan Gabrielle Harris and Stephen Towns. This year also marked participation in art fairs including Untitled and EXPO Chicago as well as a first outing on the David-Zwirner-backed art hub Platform with works by Sheena Rose and Megan Gabrielle Harris.
We have much to look forward to in 2023. Until then, Happy Holidays!
