Edward Hopper House will open an exhibition of new work by David Salle on Saturday, January 20, 6:00-8:00pm. The exhibition includes the first presentation of a selection of Salle’s figural paintings executed in 2023.
David Salle is one of the most versatile and influential contemporary artists, and his expansive talent encompasses painting, photography, printmaking, and stage design. He is also a prolific essayist and is a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books.
“Salle is described as an artist’s artist,” says Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, Edward Hopper House Museum Executive Director. “We are honored to feature his new work in galleries within the historic home of another iconic artist, providing an interesting venue to delve into Salle’s artistic dialogue with Edward Hopper.”
