Alexander the Great : The Iolas Gallery 1955-1987

Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York, United States

Iolas played a pivotal role in twentieth century art in America. He is recognized for being among the first to introduce American audiences to Surrealism, mounting Andy Warhol’s first gallery exhibition, and being an artist’s advocate who championed work according to his own tastes, rather than popular trends.

The exhibition will show the breadth of movements and careers Iolas helped to shape, and will include works by Victor Brauner, Giorgio de Chirico, William N. Copley, Joseph Cornell, Max Ernst, Lucio Fontana, Alain Jacquet, Ray Johnson, Marina Karella, Yves Klein, Les Lalanne, René Magritte, Roberto Matta, Jules Olitski, Man Ray, Martial Raysse, Ed Ruscha, Niki de Saint Phalle, Harold Stevenson, Takis, Dorothea Tanning, Paul Thek, Jean Tinguely, and Andy Warhol. Paul Kasmin Gallery is honored to represent many of the artists who worked closely with Iolas and to present this first exhibition celebrating his visionary work.
