Works on Paper
November 27, 2020–February 13, 2021

The exhibition by Andrea Zittel presents 26 new drawings that all hinge, in one way or another, on planar structures. Planar panels are flat rectangular elements that form the building blocks of so much of the reality that we construct around ourselves, from benches to bed frames to walkways. Zittel’s artistic work regularly traverses the boundaries between art and architecture, and in this exhibition reflects upon the planes and panels that exist in both our literal and psychological fields of reality.

Thomas Demand’s fourth exhibition at Sprüth Magers London will feature two new large format photographs and a selection of works from his latest Model Studies series, focusing on the atelier of the late fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa, which have recently debuted at the M Museum, Leuven. Demand continues to investigate how our interpretation of new and existing models can shape meaning, and in his pursuit of technical exactitude and sculptural form, studies the model as a way of rebuilding an impression of the world. 

John Baldessari – The Space Between

John Baldessari
The Space Between
Los Angeles

The exhibition presents John Baldessari’s final series of thirty paintings, The Space Between (2019), that demonstrate the artist’s characteristic combining of text and image. Through spatial overlays and excisions, the works at once deflect and direct our attention, while also betraying the processes by which we encode and decode the world around us. Simultaneously banal, surprising and poignant, Baldessari’s last works beautifully encapsulate the thrust of his artistic project as a whole: to explore the amorphous spaces between things, people and ideas.
