Geta Brătescu The Leaps of Aesop

13 Nov – 23 Dec 2017, Hauser & Wirth New York, 22nd Street

This exhibition of works by Geta Brătescu will be the first New York solo presentation devoted to the artist’s pioneering achievements. A forerunner in the field of Romanian Conceptualism, the 91 year-old Brătescu developed her practice in the isolated cultural landscape of Communist Romania. Her diverse oeuvre, which comprises drawing, collage, photography, filmmaking, and performance, explores themes of identity, gender, and dematerialization, focusing principally on the symbiotic relationship between art making and working environments.
