In this two-part exhibition of paintings and photographs, Förg’s vast practice is presented in greater depth. On view for the first time in the United States, a series of untitled monochromatic paintings from 1991 demonstrate Förg’s contributions to painting. In each work, the color, chosen for its association with an utopian project by the architect Le Corbusier, is imbued with a dense physicality. His interest in the manifestation of utopian ideals is further reinforced by a suite of architectural photographs. Each building was chosen because it incorporates the political ideals and sociological concerns that informed it into the architecture itself.
This exhibition closes March 28th.
