Matthew Ritchie is now represented by James Cohan Gallery in New York. The artist was formerly represented by New York’s Andrea Rosen Gallery, which closed its physical space in February 2017.
Through installations, paintings, sculptures, drawings, and performances, Ritchie grapples with big ideas and abstract concepts related to science, sociology, anthropology, mythology, and art history. He’s known for his interest in tracing the development of systems, ideas, and theories by way of his artistic practice.
Permanent installations of Ritchie’s work have been commissioned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2002 and, most recently, Cornell Tech in 2017. The artist’s newest project is called Time Diagrams, a 100-part series of paintings, performance, and floor and wall works that examines the structure and language of history.
