Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Lisson Gallery made its grand debut in New York this week with an exhibition of recent paintings by Carmen Herrera that inaugurated its first permanent location in the city: 504 West 24th Street.
The 101-year-old artist, who immigrated to the states from her native city of Havana, Cuba in 1939, has been painting for nearly 80 years. In her work, she has explored diptych and triptych configurations and has mastered the use of large-scale canvases.
While Herrera’s paintings only garnered major attention from the art world about a decade ago, she is extremely influential. Her achievements as an artist will be honored with a survey exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in September 2016.
Carmen Herrera’s work is currently on view through June 11, 2016 at Lisson Gallery.
