DEJEUNER SUR L’HERBE7 September 2017
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is presenting Déjeuner sur l’herbe, a group exhibition curated around notions of lingering. The title is less a direct reference to Edouard Manet’s groundbreaking painting than a point of departure to explore the complex span of interpretations related to it.
Just like Manet refused to conform to convention and initiated a new freedom from traditional subjects and modes of representation, the works presented in the exhibition deliberately take the landscape genre as a way to capture a contemporary state of being.
The exhibition will feature works by Jules de Balincourt, Stephan Balkenhol, Ali Banisadr, Georg Baselitz, Miquel Barceló, Cecily Brown, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Matali Crasset, Elger Esser, Antony Gormley, Adrian Ghenie, Secundino Hernandez, Alex Katz, Anselm Kiefer, Richard Long, Farhad Moshiri, Patrick Neu, Imran Qureshi, Daniel Richter, Gerwald Rockenschaub, Sturtevant, Wolfgang Tillmanns and Erwin Wurm. New works by Yan Pei-Ming, David Salle and Miquel Barceló have been especially commissioned for the exhibition.
From Saturday 9 Sep 2017 to Wednesday 11 Oct 2017
