Over the past 30 years, Louise Lawler has built her career by uniquely appropriating the pastiche of other artists. A key member of the Pictures Generation, who critiqued the over-saturated climate of media culture in the 1970s, Lawler has unveiled a new exhibition, entitled “LIGHTS OFF, AFTER HOURS, IN THE DARK” at Sprüth Magers Berlin.
For the latest series, Lawler captured Donald Judd‘s ethereal retrospective which concluded earlier this year at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The Brooklyn-based artist and photographer visited the exhibition after hours — as the title implies — creating a new dialogue to Judd’s exploration of form and space. This is the first series in which Lawler has reappropriated work in such dim and limiting conditions, however, the result is nothing short of captivating.
In the past, Lawler has created work that references the likes of Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami, to name a few. “LIGHTS OFF, AFTER HOURS, IN THE DARK” will be on view at Sprüth Magers Berlin until October 30.
