Skarstedt recently opened the doors to its new East Hampton gallery in New York. To commemorate its opening on June 17, the internationally-acclaimed art dealer launched a group exhibition featuring works by its roster of blue-chip artists including KAWS, George Condo, Barbara Kruger, among many others. The white-walled space spans 1,500 square feet.

Highlighted works include a large-scale tondo painting by KAWS from 2018, a classic type and image piece by Kruger, as well as an abstract, oil on canvas work by Willem de Kooning from 1986. The group presentation also includes a new painting by seminal American artist, David Salle. Titled Under the Earth, the work seemingly pays homage to the biblical story of Adam and Eve as it features a male and female subject in contrasting postures and ensembles. An image of a tree is positioned between the figures acting as a barrier that heightens the pair’s juxtaposing portrayals, but also introduces a sense of harmony with its warm neoexpressionist form that dominates the entire composition.

The show is currently open to the public with a 10 person limit in the space. All guests are also required to wear face masks. Check out Skarstedt‘s new East Hampton gallery in the slideshow above.
