The Armory Show
March 6th-9th 2014
After a few years of absence, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to participate in this year’s Armory Show (Pier 94 / Stand #901) and will present a selection of works with highlights by Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Ilya Kabakov, and Tony Cragg.
Handgranate (ca.1970) refers at the same time to Beuys’ personal experience during the war and to his activism and increased commitment to political reform in the late 60s. The work was included in the exhibition Objekte und Zeichnungen aus der Sammlung van der Grinten at the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal in 1971.
Campbell's chicken noodle soup box (1986) is an outstanding attempt by Andy Warhol to create a three dimensional wall sculpture out of silkscreen printed canvas, shaped after the iconic mass-produced Campbell’s Soup box.
Distant Cousin (2008), a stunning monumental stainless steel sculpture by Tony Cragg, was recently part of the show at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne and also featured in a different version in the retrospective at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas in 2011-2012
Charles Rosenthal, Im Park 1930 (1998), an important wall installation by Ilya Kabakov, was part of the retrospective at the Garage Centre for Contemporary Arts in Moscow in 2008. It is a great opportunity to present the work of Ilya and Emilia Kabakov in New York a few weeks ahead of their highly anticipated installation of Monumenta, where they will take over the entire nave of the Grand Palais in Paris.
We will also include new works by Robert Longo, Tom Sachs, Yan Pei-Ming, Marc Brandenburg, and Georg Baselitz, as well as a large still life painting by Alex Katz, which will echo the major survey show of 45 years of portraits by Katz opening at our gallery in Paris-Pantin on March 2nd.
The gallery team is very much looking forward to your visit at the stand. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or if you need any assistance with planning your visit to the fair.
