Excerpt from the Peter Freeman, Inc. Press Release:

Peter Freeman, Inc. is pleased to present an ambitious group exhibition dedicated to gallerist Richard Bellamy (1928-1998) and the circle of artists whose careers he launched and fostered.

Curated by Judith Stein, author of the recently-published Bellamy biography, Eye of the Sixties, this will be the first exhibition to explore the essential but little-known efforts of this visionary whose personal choices profoundly shaped the history of contemporary art. On view will be work from the 1950s through the 1990s by more than thirty artists, among them Jo Baer, Dan Flavin, Jean Follett, Michael Heizer, Donald Judd, Yayoi Kusama, Robert Morris, Claes Oldenburg, Jim Rosenquist, Mark di Suvero, and Tom Wesselmann. We expect this focus on Bellamy and his artists will bring important new insights into a history of taste that is still quite relevant. [...]
