Folk Devil
 curated by Rodolphe von Hofmannsthal

David Zwirner, 519, 525 & 533 W19th St., NYC

Folk Devil presents a comment on the tendency to create artificial connections between a group of individuals, while it also contains a self-referential statement on the yearly summer shows held at many art galleries under various umbrella themes.

The exhibition’s title is a reference to sociologist Stanley Cohen’s description of the British media’s hostile reaction towards deviant youth groups in the 1960s, and embodies a deep-rooted fear of subcultures and the morally aberrant.

Artists: Lynn Chadwick, Spartacus Chetwynd, Marlene Dumas, Nikolas Gambaroff, Brian Griffiths, Roger Hiorns, Ryan McGinley, Oscar Murillo, Mike Nelson, Eddie Peake, Jason Rhoades, Steven Shearer, Oscar Tuazon, Sophie von Hellermann, Franz West, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
