NEW YORK CITY, March 15 – This month at Gallery Xue / NYC we feature Agnes Sharple, Barnett Newman, and Vaneeesa Blaylock: three silent meditations on the ephemerality of life, hope, dreams, relationships.

Last Meal

China, America, Iran, Israel, and Ecuador are some of the places that do it.
Decapitation, electrocution, hanging, shooting, and stoning are some of the ways they do it.

Today Gallery Xue / Taipei is joined by a sister gallery, Gallery Xue London. Both locations celebrate the work of artists who ask uncomfortable questions about art, life, and culture here in the 21t century.
