Alice Neel: Uptown Opens in New York

Alice Neel: Uptown is the latest Alice Neel exhibition to take place at David Zwirner, New York, opening 23 February and running till  22 April. Conceived and selected by the African American New Yorker theatre critic, Hilton Als, the show concentrates on Neel's depictions of people of colour from the time she moved to Spansih (East) Harlem in 1937 to her final decades on the Upper West Side. The catalogue, which will not be available till later in the exhibition, contains Als's personal response to Neel's oeuvre, as well as an article by Jeremy Lewison situating Neel's depictions of members of New York's immigrant population within the context of publications about poverty and democracy that appeared in the 1950s and 1960s.

The exhibition contains a number of important loans, some of which have not been seen for a long time. For more information about the exhibition click here. A smaller version of the exhibition will travel to Victoria Miro Gallery, London  in the summer.
