More info: Monsieur Zohore is an Ivorian-American artist based in Richmond, VA and New York, NY. His practice is invested in widespread consumption and digestion of cultural norms by conflating quotidian domestic labor with art production. Through performance, sculpture, installation, and theater, his methods explore queer histories alongside his own Ivorian-American heritage through a multi-faceted lens of humor, economics, art history, and labor. Zohore has had solo and two-person exhibitions in 2021 at de boer, Los Angeles (forthcoming), Springsteen, Baltimore, MD, and Jack Barret Gallery, New York, NY. Recent group shows include; de boer, Los Angeles; New Release Gallery, New York, NY; One Trick Pony, Los Angeles; The Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD, Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, OH; Galleria Bianconi, Milan, Italy; and Spurs Beijing, China (forthcoming). Zohore is a 2021 Socrates Sculpture Park Fellow, Long Island City, NY.

New Art Dealers Alliance was founded in 2002, New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is a not-for-profit 501c6 collective of professionals working with contemporary art. Our mission is to create an open flow of information, support, and collaboration within our field and to develop a stronger sense of community among our constituency. We believe that the adversarial approach to exhibiting and selling art has run its course. We believe that change can be achieved through fostering constructive thought and dialogue between various points in the art industry from large galleries to small spaces, non-profit and commercial alike. Through support and encouragement, we facilitate strong and meaningful relationships between our members working with new contemporary and emerging art; while enhancing the public’s interaction with contemporary art.
