A Hug From The Art World is delighted to present Embrace, Mary McCartney’s first New York City solo exhibition. Embrace is the third part in a trilogy of exhibitions. The first: Moment of Affection opened at Chateau La Coste’s Bastide Gallery, Provence in June 2022. The second: “Can we Have a Moment? Three Decades of Photographs in Britain” opened at Sotheby’s in London in March 2023. Lastly Embrace, completes the trilogy, featuring over twenty works spanning the artist’s 30 years career, it is the first major survey of McCartney’s work in the United States.
McCartney said of her upcoming exhibition “I feel a strong connection to New York City as it is a big part of my family heritage so showing at A Hug From The Art World feels like a homecoming. Embrace completes the trilogy of shows delving further into the collected memories held within my archive. The trilogy is about connection, trust, devotion and human emotion, I want the images to take the viewer on a shared journey with me and Embrace is the culmination of that journey.” In this exhibition, McCartney collaborates once again with long time friend Georgina Cohen, the two previously teamed up on her Chateau La Coste show which Cohen co-curated. “Mary has a talent for capturing beautiful moments and it is wonderful to see these being embraced and shared. A Hug from the Artworld feels the perfect place in which to do this” says Cohen.
