ZURICH.- Galerie Eva Presenhuber announced the representation of the American artist Chase Hall.

Hall’s first solo exhibition in Europe and with the gallery will open at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Waldmannstrasse, Zurich, on March 4, 2022.

I am delighted to welcome Chase Hall to the gallery and look forward to supporting him as he navigates the crucial early stages of his career and beyond. Chase's paintings take you on a charged journey in a way that is entirely his own, and his first solo show with us demonstrates this with great spirit and courage. — Eva Presenhuber

A self-trained artist, Hall works in painting, sculpture, photography, video, and audio to scrutinize America’s past and present while interrogating the realities of being biracial. As a mixed-race male raised across America, Hall examines humanity through his individual hybridity and his usage of coffee as a pigment and cotton canvas as a conceptual white paint. Each canvas is imbued with the legacy of Hall’s personal history and a non-monolithic Black experience. Hall stains the whiteness of the cotton, a material intrinsic to American history and landscape, with the ground and brewed beans of plants from Africa while considering coffee’s relationship to addiction, commerce, labor, and exhaustion.

Through Hall’s use of surface, material, and abstraction, he is able to create a visual language reminiscent of cloud formations and pareidolia. Prompting the mind to envision and imagine its deepest concerns and illusions in the lacuna of material whiteness and their suggestive forms, Hall attempts to articulate the inarticulable through his theory of “whiteness as acne.” Hall’s work questions the complexities of life and the space between Black and white.

Chase Hall was born in 1993 in Saint Paul, MN, US, and lives and works in New York, NY, US. Hall’s paintings have been exhibited in two solo exhibitions to date: Aleczander, C L E A R I N G, New York, NY, US (2021); and Half Note, Monique Meloche Gallery, Chicago, IL, US (2020). Current and recent group exhibitions include Black American Portraits, LACMA, Los Angeles, CA, US (2021–2022); Rested, Nicola Vassell Gallery, New York, NY, US (2021–2022); Élan Vital, MOCA Westport, Westport, CT, US (2021); This Is America | Art USA Today, Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort, NL (2020); Show Me The Signs, Blum & Poe, Los Angeles, CA, US (2020); Art On The Grid, Public Art Fund, New York, NY, US (2020); Next of Kin, Various Small Fires, Seoul, KR (2020); and Then & Now, curated by Antwaun Sargent, Jenkins Johnson Projects, Brooklyn, US (2019).

Hall's work is represented in the permanent collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD, US; the Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY, US; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA, US; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA, US; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA, US; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY, US; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, US; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY, US, among others.
