15 - 18 June 2017
Victoria Miro is delighted to present a stand (R7) dedicated to the twentieth century master Milton Avery (1885 – 1965). The gallery’s first presentation of the artist since announcing its representation of Milton Avery’s work in Europe, and Victoria Miro’s first solo presentation at Art Basel in three decades of participation in the fair, features paintings and works on paper from throughout Avery’s career, many of which have never been exhibited outside of the US. The presentation includes a number of works that have been made available in Europe for the first time by The Milton Avery Trust.
A concurrent exhibition of Milton Avery’s work takes place at Victoria Miro Mayfair, 14 St George Street, London W1S 1FE, 7 June – 29 July 2017.
Edith Devaney, Contemporary Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and author of the catalogue essay for Milton Avery at Victoria Miro Mayfair (7 June - 29 July 2017) introduces Avery's work and talks about the exhibition. The talk took place at Victoria Miro Mayfair on the evening of 10 July 2017.
