This event has ended.

Pace Gallery presents Lazarus Manifold, an exhibition of recent work by Robert Longo, on the seventh floor of 540 West 25th Street in New York. Running from November 5 to December 18, the presentation follows Longo’s debut solo show at Pace, I do fly / After summer merrily, which was on view in New York this fall. Lazarus Manifold will feature Untitled (American Sinscape), a suite of five large-scale charcoal drawings, and the cast bronze sculpture Untitled (A Column of Time: One Year of The New York Times, March 2020–March 2021).

The five drawings contemplate the crimes upon which America was built while also serving as records of various ongoing crises in the US. Detailed renderings of a Native American headdress; a field of cotton; a tattered flag; a pile of opioid pills; and the wing of a fallen bird are uniformly sized and installed in close succession. The order of the images indicates a chronology, and each work activates the next to gain a perpetual momentum akin to that found among the five spheres of a Newton Pendulum.

Robert Longo continues to work with characteristic scale, precision, and perceptiveness, achieving images that, while drawn from recent history, would be otherwise impossible to see with the human eye.
