Kaiserring of the City of Goslar
October 2017
Isa Genzken has been awarded the 2017 Kaiserring of the City of Goslar, and presents a solo exhibition at Mönchehaus Museum
Isa Genzken, Untitled, 2015 (detail).

October 7, 2017–January 21, 2018

Isa Genzken is the recipient of the 2017 Kaiserring (or “Emperor’s Ring”) prize from the city of Goslar. Inaugurated in 1975 and judged by a panel of curators and museum directors, the prize is organized by the city of Goslar and the Verein zur Förderung Moderne Kunst (Association for the Promotion of Modern Art). Previous winners include fellow gallery artists Sigmar Polke, Bridget Riley, and Richard Serra. The news was published in Artforum.

An accompanying solo exhibition at the Mönchehaus Museum presented an untitled installation made in 2015 that is comprised of seven parts: four wooden towers and three columns incorporating a range of materials including mirror foil, glass, plastic flowers, spray paint, plaster, acrylic, woven polypropylene, medication instructions, coloured tape, photographs, metal clips, magazine covers, and paper. The exhibition also featured recent two-part works in which materials including photographs, printed paper and stickers are affixed to aluminium panels.

David Zwirner is pleased to present new and recent work by Isa Genzken, on view at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street location. This exhibition, the artist’s fourth with the gallery, will showcase the diversity of her practice and include a selection of new concrete sculptures, wall-mounted paintings and assemblages, and iterations of her ongoing Schauspieler (Actors) series.

 

With a career spanning over four decades, Genzken has incessantly probed the shifting boundaries between art, design, architecture, media, technology, and the individual. Her prodigious oeuvre frequently incorporates seemingly disparate materials and imagery to create complex, enigmatic works that range in medium, including sculpture, painting, collage, drawing, film, and photography. Deeply attuned to both the legacies of the twentieth-century avant-garde and the materials and forms of twenty-first-century global society, Genzken’s work interrogates the impact of our increasingly commodified and interconnected culture on our everyday lives.
