Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Fredrik Værslev, titled World Paintings.
In his essay accompanying the exhibition, Dieter Roelstraete writes: "For all its obvious relevance as a sustained meditation on the vagaries of globalization in these challenging times of worldwide anti-globalist backlash, World Paintings is above all a reflection on the act, and art, of painting. Indeed, if the problem of so much “flag art” (think of every US flag masquerading as a work of art or showing up inside a work of art since Jasper Johns’ Flag) resides in the fact that most of the time we only ever see the flag, and rarely the painting – that the flag inevitably always ends up obscuring (“trumping”) the painting – then Fredrik Værslev’s “solution” to this problem has been to look for the painterly possibilities inside the flags of his choice, so to speak: to see the paintings, for once, and not just the flags."
Exhibition Date: November 13, 2020 - December 19, 2020
