Born in Germany during 1948, Isa Genzken has influenced many artists over the past years.
Bringing her contemporary art to NYC, there is a diverse body of work on display at the MoMA.
In NYC, art lovers tend to recognize Genzken’s sculptures yet recently colorful collages, detailed drawings, beautiful paintings and striking photographs are being introduced to the city. The architecture of her pieces depict strong themes of nationalism, globalism and consumerism.
The installations are going to captivate our souls as well. Viewers will begin to question notions of life. Iza Genzken’s investigative process of creating art stimulates social experience. The retrospective presents cultural symbols in the exhibition.
