Genzken’s major retrospective spectacularly re-opens Whitechapel Gallery following its extension.
The show spans early works from the 1970s, continuing with a sequence of windows, rooms and buildings cast from plaster and concrete in the 1980s, and the installations ‘Fuck the Bauhaus/New Buildings for New York’ (2000), ‘Oil’, her remarkable pavilion for the 2007 Venice Biennale, and ‘Ground Zero’ (2008).
Genzken’s work is both poetic and philosophical, provocatively reflecting the world we live in. Her fusion of photography, paint, architecture and found objects into the realm of sculpture has influenced generations of artists.
Is this just another barrier to accessing art.
Whitechapel Gallery is opening to the public on Tuesday 14th July 2020 with new Health & Safety measures in place to prioritise the welfare of staff and visitors. The spring exhibition programme, including Radical Figures: Painting in the New Millennium, Carlos Bunga’s monumental environment and Spain’s most important collection of contemporary art will be extended through the summer.
The Whitechapel Gallery, Collezione Maramotti and Max Mara have announced the five shortlisted artists for the 8th edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women: Allison Katz, Katie Schwab, Tai Shani, Emma Talbot and Hannah Tuulikki.
