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.

David Zwirner Gallery, 519 W29th St., NYC
the exhibition features a selection of sculptures and drawings spanning the years 1969 to 2000, representing each decade of the artist’s singular and influential career. In keeping with the gallery’s program of recreating historic presentations of work by artists, the exhibition includes a reconstruction of Galerie Heiner Friedrich, Munich, a space for which the artist designed many works in the 1960s and 1970s.
