303 Gallery’s inaugural presentation at the 2018 edition of Independent New York will be dedicated to Düsseldorf-based conceptual artist Hans-Peter Feldmann. On view will be a selection of recent and historical works in photography, painting and sculpture.
Throughout his career and across disciplines, Hans-Peter Feldmann’s oeuvre has been defined by his unabated devotion to collecting and arranging images and ephemera. Revealing an uncommonly keen eye for banal yet seductive pictures, he categorizes, arranges and performs calculated acts of détournement. By reframing and altering commonplace objects and imagery, Feldmann transgresses the divide between high and low culture. His works subvert expectations, subtly prompting us to question our notions of beauty and the representative.
Hans-Peter Feldmann has shown in prestigious international venues for over 50 years. Recent solo exhibitions include a survey at Galerie des Galeries Lafayette, Paris; a comprehensive show focused on his photographic works at C/O Berlin (2016); as well as a traveling survey at Deichtorhallen in Hamburg (2013), the Serpentine Gallery in London and BAWAG Contemporary in Vienna (both 2012). Additional exhibitions were mounted at the Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid (2010); the Malmö Konstall (2010), the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf (2010); and the Arnolfini, Bristol (2007-2008). Feldmann is consistently included in important group exhibitions, including the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2016); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); São Paulo Biennial (2012), the Bass Museum of Art, Miami (2012); the Venice Biennale (2009), and Museé d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2008). In 2010, Feldmann was awarded the Hugo Boss Prize resulting in a solo exhibition at New York’s Guggenheim Museum. His work has been collected over the years by numerous public institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Hirschhorn Museum, Washington DC; and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. The artist lives and works in Düsseldorf.
