Sean Kelly presents Overture, a solo exhibition of new work by London based artist Idris Khan. This is Khan’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery and his first solo show in New York since 2010. Overture features over 25 new works exploring philosophical and theoretical ideas surrounding global displacement and conflict, demonstrating Khan’s profound interrogation into language and meaning over a wide array of media — painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper, and, for the first time in his career, works on glass.
