    • Adrian Ghenie's new monograph signing at Pace London

      On Thursday 13 February 2014, Pace London organised the signing of Adrian Ghenie's new Hatje Cantz monograph at 6 Burlington Gardens, W1S 3ET.

      Since the publication of his first monograph in 2009, Romanian artist Adrian Ghenie has established himself as one of the preeminent painters of his generation on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2012, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver mounted his first solo exhibition in the United States, and he also featured in the seminal group show Six Lines of Flight at the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. At Florence’s historic Palazzo Strozzi, Ghenie’s paintings were placed in a dialogue with works by Francis Bacon, his great role model. This was followed in 2013 by his widely acclaimed New York debut at Pace.

      While Ghenie continues to explore the darker moments of European history, the social and political abuse of power, as well as his personal history, his compositions have become conspicuously more complex over the years as he has turned increasingly toward a brighter and more colourful palette, masterfully shifting between graphicness and abstraction. This book unites seventy key works from the last four years.

      Next June, Pace London will present Adrian Ghenie’s first solo exhibition at 6 Burlington Gardens.

      Details of the monograph:
      Edited by Juerg Judin, graphic design by Jakob Straub

      Hatje Cantz
