Idris Khan After... Gallery Walkthrough and Reception

To mark the opening of Frieze New York, a few blocks from the gallery in Hudson Yards, Sean Kelly Gallery will host an exhibition walkthrough and reception for Idris Khan's exhibition After.... The tour will begin at 6:30pm and the gallery will remain open until 8pm. 


The exhibition introduces a process whereby Khan deconstructs art historical masterpieces to rich pallets of color referencing the volume and importance of the original painting’s power. Khan’s newest explorations focus on color and music, and their abilities to contain a world of memories, associations, and emotions which resonate on a universal level. Utilizing technology as complex as it is sensitive and poetic, Khan scans photographic reproductions of these artworks into a sound software that reveals their tone and color density. He then creates separate oil and water-based ink works with the dimensions of each color corresponding to the percentage in which it appears in the original painting.
