I had the privilege to have a private tour and a passionate talk with gallery owner, Amar Singh a few days before he opened “Hiding In Plain Sight”, celebrating female abstract expressionists of 1950s and 60s New York. First time shown in the UK. Curated by Dr John Paul Rollert.
Amar talks fast and convincingly and before I could ask him any question, he dives into the subject with great enthusiasm.
AS “The exhibition brings together a collection of works from key cultural female artists of the time - were are back in the 1950s downtown Manhattan, in the biggest market period, when the abstract expressionist movement made New York city the capital of the art world and changed the face of contemporary art.
