This event has ended.

Luhring Augustine presents new tapestries and works on paper by Christina Forrer, marking her first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Forrer’s turbulent compositions display psychological spaces in which stylized figures clash and embrace, at times simultaneously. Figures are interlocked – now attacking, now attacked.

On the occasion of the exhibition, the gallery will publish an artist’s book by Forrer. Twenty copies of the book will each include a unique drawing by the artist to form a separate limited edition.

Christina Forrer (b. 1978, Zurich) lives and works in Los Angeles. Selected solo exhibitions include Grappling Hold, Swiss Institute, New York (2017); Cat Lady, The Finley, Los Angeles (2016) and Grice Bench, Los Angeles (2014). Group exhibitions include Midtown, Lever House, New York (2017); Unorthodox, The Jewish Museum, New York (2015); Some Masks, Grice Bench, Los Angeles (2015); and Can’t Reach Me There, Midway Contemporary, Minneapolis (2015). She is the recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Emerging Artist Grant (2014).
