Artist Rick Lowe artworks

The Gagosian gallery will showcase the works of an artist and community organizer from Houston, Rick Lowe. Born in Alabama, Lowe is famous for his paintings and installations which include social sculpture.

Lowe is a co-founder of Project Row Houses along with six other artists. By cooperating with neighbors, they managed to turn a series of run-down houses into a cultural development. The artist’s other achievements include community projects, aimed to create a dialogue between immigrants and locals.

The Gagosian gallery

Lowe has already taken part in Gagosian New York’s group show that ran from 24 June to 11 September. The exhibition also featured work by 12 other artists and investigated the relationship between space and Afro-American social practice.

Gagosian New York's group show

The second part of the show, titled Social Works II, will take place at Gagosian in London. The event is scheduled for 7 October to 18 December. Gagosian’s first solo exhibition will take place in New York next year.
