Relph’s recent work has recorded the rapid gentrification of the city of New York, where he lives. This print employs a motif familiar from the city’s payphones, which are currently being replaced by a public Wi-Fi network.
Nick Relph (b. 1979, London) has held exhibitions at Aspen Art Museum (2014); the Chisenhale Gallery (2013) and the Serpentine Gallery, London (with Oliver Payne, 2005). His work has been presented in significant group surveys including ‘Greater New York’, MoMA PS1, New York (2015) and ‘ILLUMInations’, 54th Venice Biennale (2011). Relph will have a solo exhibition at Bonner Kunstverein in April 2017. He lives and works in New York.
