CHART is pleased to announce Will Ryman: New York, New York, opening Friday, September 9th at 74 Franklin Street, New York. The exhibition will be on view through October 29th. Marking the artist’s second solo presentation at CHART since 2020, New York, New York will span the gallery’s two floors. It is the largest body of Ryman’s work to be exhibited in his hometown since 2015.
In New York, New York Ryman presents his ode to the city through a series of vignettes comprising over 10 new painted clay works and a limited-edition bronze. The works vary in scale, from the immense to the diminutive, and are set against the backdrop of sidewalks, park benches, and subway seats. Ryman’s metropolitan 3-D landscape includes not only figures but overflowing garbage cans, roaming pigeons, and a wild rose bed—an allusion to the artist’s iconic series The Roses that first transformed Midtown Manhattan in 2011.
