Following its celebrated debut in 2015, which anticipated major institutional shows and saw a number of museum acquisitions, the Spotlight section dedicated to solo artist presentations of work made in the 20th century curated by Clara M Kim.

Kim said, ‘I’m looking forward to the second New York edition of Spotlight, which continues to explore global positions beyond the Western tradition, rarely seen work from significant figures and surveys of under-recognized artists from across the world. I’m excited to see a particularly strong representation of American artists of the mid-twentieth century including New York-based artists Jo Baer (Galerie Barbara Thumm), Ralph Humphrey (Garth Greenan Gallery) and Alan Shields (Van Doren Waxter); and Californian figures such as Joe Goode (Franklin Parrasch Gallery) and David Ireland (Anglim Gilbert Gallery). At the same time, highlights include critical moments in avantgarde art with figures from Latin America (Felipe Ehrenberg, Baró Galeria and Abraham Palatnik, Galeria Nara Roesler), South Asia (Zahoor ul Akhlaq, Jhaveri Contemporary and SH Raza, Aicon Gallery) as well as Europe (Robert Filliou with Richard Saltoun and Francois Morellet represented by Galerie Hervé Bize).’
