Artist in the News

“Genzken’s aim of thinking beyond prevailing ideas of how to reenchant volume, color, and space in an environment informed by conspicuous consumption and television led her to drop both midcentury modernist autonomy and ‘literalist’ objecthood via a sly inversion.”

Isa Genzken’s major exhibition, Isa Genzken. Works from 1973 to 1983, currently on view at Kunstmuseum Basel, is reviewed in Artforum’s April 2021 issue. Writer Daniel Horn calls attention to her “Ellipsoids”series, in particular highlighting Ellipse Nr. 1, 1976, noting how it “dislodges the formal concerns of pivotal antecedent avant-gardes.”  

This show will travel to the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf in May.
