Gladstone Gallery, New York: Rondinone Shows Josephsohn in a Group Exhibition

March 24, 2012 to April 21, 2012

Ugo Rondinone took the title of the exhibition – «The Spirit Level» – from a book of poetry by the Irish writer Seamus Heaney. This in turn makes reference to the water level, which indicates the perfect horizontal and thus also equilibrium and perfect balance. Without explicitly referring to this and without any further curatorial statement, in the group exhibition at Barbara Gladstone in New York that he has curated, Ugo Rondinone brings together works from the most varied of artists including Martin Boyce, Amy Granat, Sarah Lucas, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Hans Josephsohn, and others. Rondinone already showed several reclining figures by Josephsohn in an explicitly contemporary context within the framework of the group exhibition «The Third Mind» in Paris in 2007.

Artists participating the group exhibition «The Spirit Level»:
Latifa Echakheh, Ann Craven, Andrew Lord, Jay Defeo, Saul Fletcher, Sarah Lucas, Klara Liden, Kim Jones, Hans Josephsohn, Alan Shields, Amy Granat, Hans Schärer, Sam Gilliam, Joe Bradley, Peter Buggenhout, Martin Boyce, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Al Hansen
