Grand Tour of Asian Contemporary Art
Salman Toor at Whitney Museum New York
For his first exhibition at the Whitney Museum of Art in New York - from November 13, 2020 to April 4, 20121 - Salman Toor, of Pakistani origin, presents new and recent oil paintings. Known for his figurative works that combine academic technique and a rapid sketching style, Salman Toor offers intimate views of the imagined lives of young queer brown men living between New York and Southeast Asia. His characters are amalgamations of historical references in art - from baroque to rococo - imbued with an atmosphere of the Beat Generation from the 1950s to the 21st century. The artist has thus developed his style and created breathtaking work.
