Senga Nengudi – Spirit Crossing

The Sprüth Magers gallery presents a new artworks by artist Senga Nengudi. The exhibition is presented jointly with Thomas Erben Gallery in New York.


Human Sized Silhouettes

The Sprüth Magers Gallery is honored to present an exhibition at the New York gallery that illuminates in-depth Senga Nengudi’s Spirit Flags, an important body of work created by the artist while working in New York in the early 1970s. These evocative works comprise boldly colored fabrics cut into the form of human-sized silhouettes, which Nengudi then affixed with ropes to the walls and edges of rooms, and even staged outdoors in alleyways and across fire escapes.

Beautifully staged photographs of Nengudi’s Spirit Flags strung in outdoor and indoor locations, shot in 1972, will be on view alongside a selection of sculptural Spirit Flags recreated by the artist for the first time in four decades.
