19 Contemporary Artists with Exhibitions This Year

Launch Slideshow

Ruth Asawa at David Zwirner, Mark Bradford at the Venice Biennale and the recently opened Laura Owens mid-career retrospective at the Whitney. Those are just a few of many current and recent exhibitions the art world is buzzing about. Works by those artists and many others included in major museum and gallery exhibitions around the world can be found in our upcoming Contemporary Art Day Auction. In this sale, you will find paintings by Sam Gilliam, Frank Bowlling, Alma Thomas and Jack Whitten, all of whom are featured in the Tate’s groundbreaking exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. If you missed the show in London, fear not – the critically acclaimed exhibition travels to two US venues in 2018. Click ahead to see just a few of the artists who are having their moment.
