New works by Cologne-based artist Cosima von Bonin will be on exhibit at her sixth solo show in New York, The Juxtaposition of Nothings, at the Friedrich Petezel Gallery, which opens March 31 and runs through April 30, 2011.
Cosima von Bonin, one of the most prominent artists of her generation, has always been multifaceted, by incorporating a mixture of sculpture, installation, painting, textiles, performance, sound, and film in her work. She continues to stretch the definition of an artist not only through her diverse material practice but also by assuming the roles of curator, critic and producer.
In her current exhibition at Friedrich Petzel Gallery, von Bonin presents fabric wall works accompanied by three new sculptures: a Pinocchio on a high chair, a street lamp smoking a cigarette, and a lazy rabbit as a “sloth” supine on a table. Von Bonin’s approach often has a collaborative element: she has organized numerous exhibitions and events with fellow artists, musicians and theorists. In this exhibition, soundtracks composed by Moritz von Oswald accompany the artworks. These compositions will be heard in pinpointed locations throughout the gallery.
Cosima von Bonin’s work was featured prominently at 2007’s documenta 12 in Kassel. Her exhibition ROGER AND OUT, curated by Ann Goldstein, at MOCA Los Angeles in 2008 was the artist’s first large-scale institutional survey in the United States. Von Bonin’s work has most recently been exhibited at the Kunsthaus in Bregenz followed by the Arnolfini in Bristol. Her upcoming solo exhibitions include the Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis, Mamco in Geneva and Museum Ludwig in Cologne.

Skylar Fein’s recent work titled Black Lincoln for Dooky Chase will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum through August 2011 as the centerpiece of an installation including related works from the permanent collection. In Fein’s 2010 work he overlays a silhouette portrait of Abraham Lincoln on a panel created to resemble an old wall menu from Dooky Chase, a well-known New Orleans Creole and soul food restaurant.
Black Lincoln for Dooky Chase
Fein’s portrait, painted in acrylic on plaster and wood, will be displayed alongside such works as an 1871 marble bas-relief profile of Lincoln, early nineteenth-century cut-paper silhouettes by French artist August Edouart, and Kara Walker’s 2005 Cotton Hoards in Southern Swamp (from Harper Pictorial History of the Civil War). We highlighted Kara Walker’s artwork last year and you can see a video of Walker’s silhouettes here.
