Peter Blake Gallery is pleased to return to The Armory Show in New York for the third year.
For the 2021 edition, we will be exhibiting a solo presentation of recent artworks by multidisciplinary artist Lita Albuquerque. Since the early 1970's, Lita Albuquerque has created an expansive body of work, encompassing sculpture, painting, multi-media performance, and ambitious site-specific earthworks in remote locations around the globe. Often associated with the Light and Space and Land Art movements, Albuquerque has developed a unique visual and conceptual vocabulary using the earth, color, the body, motion, and time to illuminate identity as part of the universal. The planned exhibition at The Armory Show will present Albuquerque’s renowned ‘Auric Field’ paintings, alongside a site-specific installation. The exhibition will be an immersive experience exploring Albuquerque’s ongoing investigation into color, light, perception, and our place within the cosmos.
