Boklansering: Kiki Kogelnik, Inner Life
Printed Matter, New York
Join Kunsthall Stavanger and Printed Matter on September 28 for the New York launch of Kiki Kogelnik: Inner Life! The evening will include a panel discussion with Wendy Vogel, Jenni Sorkin, and Emily Liebert moderated by Heather Jones. Copies of the publication will be for sale during the event.
In conjunction with the extensive exhibition of the work of Austrian artist Kiki Kogelnik, Kunsthall Stavanger, Hatje Cantz, and the Kiki Kogelnik Foundation have released a catalogue highlighting artworks from the 1960’s and 70’s, a particularly prolific period of the artist’s life. Titled Inner Life, the publication sets Kogelnik’s work apart from her Pop-artist colleagues and explores her distinctive aesthetic, close relationship to second-wave feminism, and commentary on politics, social critique, the space age, and the human body. The catalogue presents installation images from the exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger, a selection of archival images, and commissioned texts from art historian Jenni Sorkin and writer and curator Wendy Vogel, with an introduction by Kunsthall Stavanger Director Hanne Mugaas and design by Alexander Nussbaumer.
