Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress


08 Mar 201909 Sep 2019

The exhibition is the first North American retrospective of Charlotte Posenenske and the most comprehensive ever dedicated to her practice.
“Work in Progress” spans her twelve-year career, before the German artist left the art field to pursue the study of labour.

On view a wide variety of pieces, both original prototypes and newly fabricated items, ranging from the earliest experimental ones, to her aluminum wall-reliefs and to her final modular sculptures. Her works develop a sort of mass-produced Minimalism, characterised by industrial fabrication, minimal geometry and serial repetition. Through them, Posenenske aimed to discuss the most pressing issues related with the socio-economic context of the decade. The exhibition, in fact, also aims to recover her critical  and artistic contributions to the Minimal and Conceptual movements.
