Arlene Shechet is a sculptor living and working in New York City and the Hudson Valley. A major, critically acclaimed 20-year survey of the artist’s work, All At Once, which the New York Times called “some of the most imaginative American sculpture of the past 20 years, and some of the most radically personal,” was on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston in 2015 with an accompanying catalogue. Meissen Recast, a book that focuses on Shechet’s porcelain work at the Meissen manufactory in Germany was published by Gregory Miller in 2015. Shechet’s installation, Porcelain, No Simple Matter: Arlene Shechet and the Arnhold Collection is on view at The Frick Collection from May 2016 to May 2017. Other upcoming solo museum exhibitions include the Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. in October 2016 and the Jewish Museum, NYC in September 2017. Shechet’s work is included in many distinguished public and private collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and the National Gallery, Washington, D.C. Shechet is represented in New York by Sikkema Jenkins & Co.
