FRANZ WEST
Works 1970-2010

I used to hope that my art would be a scream. On the contrary, it was like a blossom. — Franz West

Gagosian is pleased to present a career-spanning exhibition of sculpture and works on paper by Franz West.
 
From abstract and interactive sculpture to furniture and collage, West’s protean oeuvre possesses a character that is at once lighthearted and deeply philosophical. Manipulating everyday materials and imagery in order to examine art’s relation to social experience, West revolutionized the interplay of concealment and exposure, action and reaction, both in and outside the gallery.

Merging the mundane and the mystical, the public and the private, West’s work introduces combinations and revisions that continue to unfold in the space between the real and the imagined.
