Astrid Klein

Through March 9, 2024
Sprüth Magers, New York

Both illustrate the fundamental importance of collage to Klein’s practice, the versatility of her thinking, and her innovative reinterpretation of the image, particularly through the incorporation of text.

At the same time, these works are a testimony to the artist’s intellectual acuity and the lasting relevance of the themes she addresses – Klein’s dialog with social and political developments, her questioning of prevailing power structures, and her exploration of topics such as the construction of identity, are as relevant today as ever.

Richard Artschwager

Cornered: Celebrating the Artist’s Centennial
February 10–March 23, 2024
Public Reception: February 9, 6–8pm
Sprüth Magers, Berlin

The work of Richard Artschwager has always defied categories and continues to be marked by a spirit of nonconformity. In honor of the artist’s centennial, Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are delighted to present a solo exhibition of Artschwager’s work at the Berlin gallery.

Displaying works from his “Crates” (1995) and Splatter (2000–08) series, Formica sculptures (1964–2008) and paintings (1997) alongside an exuberant Exclamation Point (2008), the show offers a synoptic overview of a practice concerned with the habits and mechanics of looking. Learn more

Sylvie Fleury

Égoïste
February 10–March 23, 2024
Public Reception: February 9, 6–8pm
Sprüth Magers, Berlin

ÉGOÏSTE. Thirteen bright neon works that read the French word are mounted at different heights on the walls of the gallery’s storefront exhibition space.

The sunken and high-ceilinged room with its large display windows allows visitors to view Sylvie Fleury’s installation from the street. Learn more

Thea Djordjadze

framing yours making mine
February 23–March 28, 2024
Public Reception: February 22, 6–8pm
Sprüth Magers, London

Thea Djordjadze’s temporary sculptural environments draw on the language of architecture, allude to modernist design and echo the culture of her native Georgia.She combines a variety of artistic, industrial and unconventional materials to produce idiosyncratic works full of contrasts.

By reconfiguring her works for the duration of an exhibition to respond to the particularities of the spaces in which they are installed, Djordjadze investigates institutional modes of presentation and display and how context affects the understanding and experience of art. Sprüth Magers is pleased to present Djordjadze’s fresh, site-specific iterations of earlier sculptures combined with entirely new works across two floors of the London gallery. Learn more

David Maljkovic

Overpaint with Shadows
February 23–March 28, 2024
Public Reception: February 22, 6–8pm
Sprüth Magers, London

David Maljkovic is known for a multifaceted practice that, through a collagist approach referencing both the works of other artists and his own earlier works and exhibitions, considers individual and collective attitudes toward the complexity of time, whilst also playing with the nature of the gaze.

His exhibition Overpaint with Shadows on the third floor of Sprüth Magers, London, presents a series of new paintings and architectural interventions that take the process of overpainting as both their subject and source. For Maljkovic, the act of overpainting is both literal and metaphorical, pertaining not only to the act of painting or to painting itself, but also addressing the content, or rather, the starting point.

Nora Turato

it’s not true!!! stop lying!
February 28–April 27, 2024
Public Reception: February 27, 5–8pm
Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles

Nora Turato’s medium is language. In a practice that spans performance, video and graphic design, she examines the ephemeral nature of words and the instability of meaning. Using text as her artistic source material, Turato records and dissects the vernacular of our current visual culture and zeitgeist by collating appropriated words, fragments, and quotes and translating them into captivating incantations that harness the essence and the nonsense of what collectively moves us.

Sprüth Magers is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the artist opening late February 2024, which will feature a performance and premiere a new video work alongside her latest enamel panels across both floors of the Los Angeles gallery. The works constitute part of Turato’s sixth installment of pools – anthologies of found text she compiles from a myriad of sources.

Picking up the thread of her commission for the 2023 Performa Biennial, as well as her 2023 solo exhibition at Sprüth Magers, Berlin, Turato investigates and interprets the mechanisms of the anxiety-driven culture of self-optimization. Learn more
