Cross 20th Group Show
Historical Group Show incl. Gursky, June Paik, Prince Ruscha & Whiteread - Haunted Realism
Gagosian is pleased to present Haunted Realism, a group exhibition featuring the work of more than thirty artists including Meleko Mokgosi, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, and Tatiana Trouvé. Haunted Realism takes its title in part from hauntology, a term coined by Jacques Derrida in his 1993 book Specters of Marx to characterize what he considered the tendency of Marxism to “haunt Western society from beyond the grave.”
Derrida’s concept has been explored in a broader cultural context, denoting a state of historical overlap and disjunction—“the past inside the present”—that resonates through fields ranging from anthropology and philosophy to film, electronic music, and visual art.
Artists - Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, Meleko Mokgosi, Nam June Paik, Chris Burden, Rachel Whiteread, Jim Shaw, Tatiana Trouvé, Jeff Wall, Urs Fischer, Ewa Juszkiewicz, Albert Oehlen, Andreas Gursky & Richard Prince
