Click to enlargeROBERT LONGO : LET THE FRAME OF THINGS DISJOINT
Sep 15 - Nov 11, 2017
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London is pleased to present Let the Frame of Things Disjoint, the first solo exhibition in London by the American artist Robert Longo, taking place from 15 September until 11 November 2017. A catalogue with a text by Tim Griffin will accompany the exhibition.
The exhibition will feature over twenty, new charcoal works exploring the volatility of today’s contemporary climate through the lens of Macbeth’s famed line: ‘let the frame of things disjoint’. Uttered by the treacherous king in admission of his intense guilt, declaring that he would sooner die than live with the consequences of his misdeeds,
the passage is understood by Longo as depicting a moment in which the world has already begun to come apart. It is through this ‘disjoint’ that the artist asks viewers to consider our contemporary climate and its chaotic state of flux.

LAND OF LADS, LAND OF LASHES
Jun 26 - Aug 11, 2018
Land of Lads, Land of Lashes presents, for the first time in the UK, seminal sculptures and paintings of three female artists of 1960s and 1970s Minimal and Post-Minimal art who broke the artistic boundaries of the period: Rosemarie Castoro introduced surreal and sexual connotations to the cool, mathematical rigour of Minimalism; Lydia Okumura expanded the tradition of the Brazilian geometric avant-garde with her multi-dimensional abstract environments; and Wanda Czelkowska challenged artistic traditions by fusing anthropomorphic sculpture with brutalist, industrial structures. All three artists created an avant-garde inside the avant-garde, transcending the idea of one style in favour of radical experimentation.
Guest curated by Anke Kempkes, a leading expert in the field of female avant-garde art, this landmark London exhibition spanning Ropac's entire gallery marks a further turning point at which female artists pioneered new art movements and subverted the avant-garde language of the time.
