THE ARMORY SHOW, New York | March 7 to 10, 2013
Solo Presentation by Fabian Marcaccio
Booth 610, Pier 94 | Contact +1 646 2754530
At next month's Armory Show the gallery will be representing Fabian Marcaccio in an exclusive solo show.
The focus of our stand will be placed on Marcaccio's latest Rope Painting from the ongoing series "USA Stories", a large selection of which has been shown in 2012 during his solo exhibition at Museum Haus Esters in Krefeld.
Marcaccio's Rope Paintings represent a new form of modern history or investigative report painting based on paradigmatic themes in American politics, economics, and society. They are a kaleidoscope of meaning, carrying on Marcaccio's analytical discussion on the medial image-overflow in modern society.
The theme of Marcaccio's latest Rope Painting - the Lorraine motel, the site where Martin Luther King was assassinated - that will be on display at this year's Armory Show, allows the artist to question an historical event and the ground of painting in a contemporary context.
