comunicato stampa

Mary Ryan and Jeffrey Lee are pleased to announce the opening of their joint venture, Ryan Lee, a new gallery dedicated to contemporary art. Located in the Chelsea district of Manhattan, Ryan Lee will be home to a dynamic roster of contemporary artists working in a diverse array of media, including photography, video, painting, and performance art. Representing an international roster of both established and emerging artists, including May Stevens, Donald Sultan, Sangbin IM, and Angiola Gatti, Ryan Lee is committed to showing innovative and pioneering exhibitions that represent the spectrum of contemporary artistic practices.

For its inaugural exhibition, Ryan Lee will present Sangbin IM: Spectacle, an exhibition of new work by Korean artist Sangbin IM. Best known for his composite photographs – vibrant works composed of hundreds of images taken over a series of days and embedded over painted surfaces – IM’s works seamlessly blend painting and photography, integrating the two mediums to create a hyper-realist vision. Sangbin IM: Spectacle, will feature works from the artist’s “People” series, a collection of constructed photographs that portray crowds of people at notable cultural destinations and tourist hubs around the world. To IM, these sites are the true global spaces, as they transcend their national identity, becoming, instead, a place that is truly international. In conjunction with the exhibition Ryan Lee will publish Sangbin IM: Works, a 228-page monograph, featuring an introduction by Nan Rosenthal.

Working together for more than a decade, Mary Ryan and Jeffrey Lee have had a longstanding interest in advancing and promoting contemporary art. The opening of Ryan Lee, which will be located at 527 West 26th Street in the former location of the Mary Ryan Gallery, will provide the opportunity to create a space dedicated to a contemporary art program. The space has been redesigned and renovated by SO-IL architects, the Brooklyn-based firm that designed the tent for Frieze Art Fair NYC in 2012, and the summer 2010 courtyard installation at MoMA PS1. The gallery has been re-envisioned as a platform for exhibiting contemporary installations and object-based art, providing a versatile space for artists to display new work.

In addition to a roster of new artists, Ryan Lee will represent several of the contemporary artists that showed with Mary Ryan Gallery. Mary Ryan Gallery will continue to operate as a private secondary market dealership with an emphasis on prints and works on paper that will be open by appointment only.

Opening: April 27, 5-7pm
