Blain|Southern proudly announces a Sean Scully solo exhibition, opening in London on 3 October for Frieze Week.

The exhibition coincides with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden's museum premiere of Scully’s acclaimed Landline series and the Sean Scully: Inside Outside at Yorkshire Sculpture Park from 29 September.

This year the artist is the subject of no less than 15 solo exhibitions internationally. Of 10 public exhibitions, a remarkable 7 were recently running concurrently at museums and institutions around the world. This reflects a level of international recognition that is rarely seen for any living artist. 

Scully’s UK solo presentations alone offer an extensive examination of his oeuvre, taking place at significant locations throughout the country in which this Irish-born, U.S. citizen lived as a child and a young man. They reflect the breadth of Scully’s practice from painting and beyond, as well as exploring the effect that specific locations have had on the development of his work. In turn, Scully’s extensive run of exhibitions worldwide reflects the journey taken by this remarkable artist as he earned his title as one of the world’s most accomplished living painters.
