Hans-Peter Feldmann Featured at 303 Gallery in Honor of Its Inaugural Presentation
In celebration of his work centered on rearrangement, 303 Gallery’s inaugural presentation at Independent New York will be dedicated to conceptual artist Hans-Peter Feldmann, which will feature a selection of his recent and historical works in photography, painting, and sculpture when it opens on March 8. With an abundance of work devoted to collecting, reordering, and re-arranging images and memorabilia, Feldmann is highly familiar with having his work featured in prestigious international galleries. After being a part of countless group exhibitions such as Venice Biennale (2009) and Musee d’Art Morderne de la Ville de Paris (2008), this veteran artist was awarded the Hugo Boss Prize in 2010 which resulted in a solo exhibition at New York’s Guggenheim museum.
Since then, his handiwork has been collected by public institutions like The Museum of Modern Art in New York; Tate Modern in London; and The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. With his recent solo exhibition at Galerie des Galeries Lafayette, Paris (2016) for his comprehensive show centered on his photography and his various features in global galleries, Feldmann’s work has transgressed the boundaries of the art world’s proverbial glass ceiling. Clearly, this artist has rightfully earned his place in these institution as his work is passionately curated collection is uniquely eccentric and vibrant.
Throughout his career, Feldmann has proven to have a keen eye for steering works of art into a whole new direction and bringing it to its fullest potential. By reimagining, reframing, and arranging trite and banal objects into something entirely seductive, it is no question that his main discipline is one of rerouting—one that infringes on the bounds of class and culture divide. His work is uniquely unexpected as it causes its onlookers to question their own standards of beauty and the representations of it.
