To mark our 25th anniversary, American Icons will feature the forefathers and spearheads of the American art realm, showcasing works from the likes of Alexander Calder, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Sam Francis, Frank Stella, Tom Wesselmann, Robert Indiana and Alex Katz amongst others.
Leaving their mark in art history and revolutionizing the modern art world, these diverse and experimental New World artists have pushed boundaries forging forward, reimagining the functionality of sculpture and painting, exploiting taboo subject matters and social commentaries, appropriating popular imagery and giving them a new lease of life. This conversion and juxtaposition of creative thoughts and methods has completely redefined the Tao of art for our modern age. Having arrived at the forefront of this modern age, Opera Gallery is poised for the opportunities and challenges of the next 25 years with a forward momentum marked by further grand expansions, significant exhibitions and treasured connections.
