Presenting a solo exhibition of sculpture and drawing dedicated to the late artist Michael Richards (1963–2001). The exhibition, curated by Alex Fialho and Melissa Levin. On the morning of September 11, 2001, Michael Richards was working in his studio on the 92nd floor of World Trade Center, Tower One, when the first plane struck, taking his life along with thousands of others. At the time of his passing, Richards was an emerging artist whose incisive aesthetic--provocative, playful, and with a critical bent--held immense promise to make him a leading figure in contemporary art.
Last chance to see a spectacular look back at the work of the late Michael Richards, killed in the September 11attacks on the World Trade Center, where he was artist-in-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council on the 92nd floor. A contemporary of Kara Walker and Kerry James Marshall, Richards had a rising career based on politically potent work that still resonates today.
