Ibrahim El-Salahi

Frieze NYStand B4820 Randalls Island, New York, NY 10035, USA
14 – 17 May 2015

In 2013 Ibrahim El-Salahi was the first African artist to have a solo retrospective at Tate Modern. He is considered to be not only the godfather of African and Arabic Modernism but also the link with Western Modernism due to his cross-cultural learning, exposure and experience of over 60 years.

At Frieze New York Vigo presents a selection of historical works from the artist’s private collection. Our stand will include rare 1960s paintings and drawings as well as monumental works from the 80s and 90s.
