Folk Devil is opening at David Zwirner’s 19th Street Gallery on Thursday, July 11th. Curated by Rodolphe von Hofmannsthal, the show features a group of international artists including 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. “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 opens this Thursday evening with a reception from 6-8PM at 519, 525 & 533 West 19th Street, New York. The showwill run from July 11 - August 9 2013.
