The dynamic duo Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers, also known as Sprüth Magers, have collaborated with three international artists (Kara Walker, Andro Wekua, and Senga Nengudi), to launch three opening exhibits for Berlin Gallery Weekend.
Kara Walker's work is well known for the clever connections it draws between the legacy of slavery in the United States, the evolution of historical narratives and cultural beliefs, and contemporary race relations.The exhibit will display Walker's video Fall Frum Grace, Miss Pipi’s Blue Tale (2011), a work that highlights the artist's compelling approach to difficult but crucially relevant subject matter.
For over four decades, artist Senga Nengudi has been pushing the boundaries between sculpture, photography, and performance.The exhibition features four recent sculptures from Nengudi’s celebrated R.S.V.P series, which the artist first began in the late 1970s in response to her changing pregnant body.
At the center of Andro Wekua’s new exhibition at Sprüth Magers is a life-size sculpture made of nickel silver - a silver-like alloy of copper, nickel and zinc - and a group of paintings. Seemingly without effort, Wekua expresses universal narrative structures and creates timeless works.
In Zusammenarbeit mit drei internationalen Künstlern launcht Sprüth Magers drei Ausstellungs-Eröffnungs während des Berlin Gallery Weekends.
