An Apartment for Ghosts: ‘57–‘23

Petzel is pleased to present the group show An Apartment for Ghosts: ’57–’23, on view from January 6th through February 18th, 2023, at Petzel’s uptown location, 35 East 67th Street. This group exhibition casts a dialogue among various of the gallery’s artists, old and new, to locate points of aesthetic and conceptual collision, and the mediating effects of their differing contexts. The show inches along the historic timeline from 1957, when Asger Jorn’s ceramic was made, to the present.
 
Artworks featured include those by Ross Bleckner, Joe Bradley, Troy Brauntuch, Keith Edmier, Tomoo Gokita, Stefanie Heinze, Charline von Heyl, Sean Landers, Maria Lassnig, James Little, Emily Mae Smith, Malcolm Morley, Jorge Pardo, Joyce Pensato, Stephen Prina, Pieter Schoolwerth, Nicola Tyson, and Heimo Zobernig.
