ROBERT LONGO : LET THE FRAME OF THINGS DISJOINT
Sep 15 - Nov 11, 2017
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London is pleased to present Let the Frame of Things Disjoint, the first solo exhibition in London by the American artist Robert Longo, taking place from 15 September until 11 November 2017. A catalogue with a text by Tim Griffin will accompany the exhibition.
The exhibition will feature over twenty, new charcoal works exploring the volatility of today’s contemporary climate through the lens of Macbeth’s famed line: ‘let the frame of things disjoint’. Uttered by the treacherous king in admission of his intense guilt, declaring that he would sooner die than live with the consequences of his misdeeds,
the passage is understood by Longo as depicting a moment in which the world has already begun to come apart. It is through this ‘disjoint’ that the artist asks viewers to consider our contemporary climate and its chaotic state of flux.

Sep 15 - Nov 11, 2017
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to present the installation Concert for a Fly (Chamber Music), 1986, by pioneer conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. Russianborn and American-based, today they are recognised as among the most significant international artists to have emerged in the late 20th century.
Concert for a Fly (Chamber Music) is a historic installation, first exhibited in 1986 in Switzerland at the Neue Galerie, Dierikon, then in 1992 at the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art and at the Kölnisher Kunstverein, Cologne. It forms part of an overall
series of ten installations, where each represents a character. Exhibited in the gallery’s 18th century Ely Room, the work, with a musical arrangement by Joseph Morag, is given renewed relevance.
