David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea will open its doors to one of the foremost American figurative painters of the twentieth century, Alice Neel, with the exhibition, Alice Neel: Freedom.

This exhibition will include a selection of paintings and significant works on paper, focusing primarily on Neel’s portrayal of the nude figure and the ways in which the artist resolutely challenged traditional perceptions of sexuality, motherhood, and beauty.

Alice Neel: Freedom will be on view at David Zwirner through April 13, 2019, located at 537 West 20th Street in Chelsea, NYC.

This exhibition was organized by Ginny Neel of The Estate of Alice Neel, and will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue that will include newly commissioned scholarship by Helen Molesworth, an introduction by Ginny Neel, and a contribution by Marlene Dumas.
