Agora Gallery is pleased to announce The Figure and Unknown Places, an exhibition of twenty-six international artists working at the intersection of portraiture and landscape. The diverse selection of artists includes Angela Blattner, Gunter Langer, Ketan Kelkar, Mireille Pizzo, Marco Henrie, Ilaria Castagnacci, Hugo Ximello-Salido, Ashraf Elsharif, Mileidy Plata, Jutta Ebeling-Dehnhard, J.H. Rebelato, Germán Valles Fernández, Taikyu Lim, Susan Marx, Christine Stettner, Yu He, Pino Lavecchia, Gonzalo Urrea Correa, Monica Adams, Andreas Meer, Marliese Scheller, Fiorenza D'Orazi, Francis Annan Affotey, Boguslawa Czarnecka, Richard Tomlin, and Linda Rosen

The works featured in The Figure and Unknown Places offer new insights on traditions of portraiture and landscape painting, each artist depicting the world through a subjective and highly personal lens. The paintings and photographs on view employ abstraction, realism, and illustration to convey perspectives on the human condition and the world we inhabit. The complexity of the relationship between man and nature is also explored in works that image the engrained connections between human and animal. Providing insight on the binary of nature and culture, the artists in The Figure and Unknown Places dismantle presumed categories and imagine new worlds.  

The Figure and Unknown Places opens July 7th with an opening reception Thursday, July 12th 6-8 PM and will remain on view until July 27th, 2018.
