AN ART CONSULTANCY SUPPORTING A COMMUNITY OF ARTISTS AND COLLECTORS
On May 14, 2020, Sidel & McElwreath will launch ENJOYABLE PRESENCE, a solo online exhibit of work by Margot Bird. Simply put, Margot’s work is an antidote for our times; humorous, strange, and elegant. She achieves this by positioning her subjects into silly, bizarre, or unexpected situations. Margot Bird will be included in HOMEGROWN, a show presented by Hauser & Wirth as a series of releases by 12 artists occurring every two weeks, beginning 9 May through 18 July. In addition, Sidel & McElwreath has partnered with Exhibition A to launch a limited edition print of "Poodle Scarf" to accompany the launch of ENJOYABLE PRESENCE.

HarvestA Convening of Materiality and Form
(New York, New York) October 2019 — Sidel & McElwreath is honored to present the inaugural exhibition, HARVEST: A Convening of Materiality & Form, a living artist showcase that marks the first public program undertaken by the female-founded contemporary art advisory practice in its commitment to support living artists.
This exhibition uses as its foundation the symbolic concept of harvest. The curatorial focus is placed both on the literal convening of a broad range of media, mediums, and concepts, as well as the constellation of complex personal biographies represented by the work of six living artists. Organic materials and natural iconography lend a visual cohesion and emphasize the artists’ interest in both human and natural ecology.
Abundant in texture and iconography, the works can be understood as a cornucopia of artistic methodologies and subjectivities, queered ideologies, and ultimately a democratic treatment of the artistic landscape of the present day. The title speaks to the process of bringing together disparate artists and artistic practices in community with one another, compounded with the spirit of conviviality and the gathering of a harvest.
