Marian Goodman Gallery has added artist Daniel Boyd to its roster. The gallery presented its first solo show of Boyd’s work, Dreamland, from 12 January to 24 February this year.

Boyd is known for works that put a contemporary spin on traditional Indigenous Australian dot paintings.

‘We have the oldest continuous culture on earth and it’s important to celebrate that,’ Boyd said in a statement shared by the gallery.

Boyd’s work has previously shown in major exhibitions including the 2016 Sydney Biennale, the 2015 Venice Biennale, and the 2014 Kochi-Muziris Biennale.

His installation Doan (21 March to 7 April), curated by Alexie Glass Kantor, is showing in Hong Kong as an ‘off-site Encounter’ for Art Basel.

Marian Goodman Gallery will feature works by Boyd in their booth at Art Basel in Switzerland in June. They are also planning to exhibit him in their Paris gallery.

‘The gallery has had a history of providing a critical U.S. platform for international artists since its founding and developed an ever-more global focus since the early ’90s,’ Philipp Kaiser, President and Partner, Marian Goodman Gallery, told ARTnews.

Marian Goodman Gallery declined to comment on the international market for Boyd’s work, but international interest in Indigenous Australian artists has been on the rise this year.

New York gallery Salon 94 held its exhibition Desert + Coast: Seven Elder Aboriginal Painters from 11 January to 21 February.

‘[These artists] clearly speak and paint in a universal language using signs and symbols that are global and recognisable,’ the gallery’s founder, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, told Ocula at the time.

Boyd is the second Indigenous Australian artist to find representation with an international gallery this week after Brook Andrew joined Ames Yavuz, which has spaces in Singapore and Sydney. —[O]
