Roman Opalka: Painting ∞

Roman Opałka

Painting ∞

Lévy Gorvy New York
September 4 – October 18 2014

Roman Opalka: Painting provides an overview of Opalka’s career, revealing his œuvre to be a grand metaphor for human existence and a deceptively restrained expression of the artist’s vitality and passion in the face of an unstoppable evaporation. The exhibition will present a key group of paintings (each titled Détails) from 1965 / 1 – , complemented by a selection of the artist’s related Self-Portraits photographs and audio recordings in which Opalka intones, in his native Polish, the numbers he is painting. The exhibition will also present antecedents to 1965 / 1 – ∞. Two rare Chronomes paintings of 1963 will be on view, as will the entire series of Opalka’s ten Etude sur le Mouvement works on paper from 1959-60. These works will be shown together with the Details for the first time in the United States.
