Serpentine South Gallery 12 December 2001 — 10 February 2002 Free

An in-depth show of the work of Richard Artschwager, one of the key artistic figures of post-war American art.

This exhibition was the first in-depth show in a public gallery in Britain of Artschwager’s work. The presentation included works from Artschwager’s varied oeuvre of the last 40 years.

The exhibition included pieces from his early furniture-like objects and marble-effect Formica pieces of the 1960s, to his seminal blps – black lozenge-shaped objects that often appear in surprising places – to more painterly images on textured surfaces.

Richard Artschwager passed away in February 2013.
