Last chance to see - Taryn Simon at Gagosian Gallery in NY

Posted 07/03/2016

Gagosian Gallery: Closes 26 March

Gagosian Gallery is currently holding Taryn Simon’s exhibition Paperwork and the Will of Capital running until 26 March 2016.

Simon's research-driven approach has produced such impactful bodies of work as The Innocents (2002) and An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar (2007). In Paperwork and the Will of Capital, Simon examines accords, treaties, and decrees drafted to influence systems of governance and economics, from nuclear armament to oil deals and diamond trading. 

A storyteller whose grist is the instability of fact, Simon’s 12 unique sculptures were initially presented in the 56th Biennale di Venezia in 2015. The Gagosian Gallery now brings them together with 36 large-scale annotated photographs as a complete body of work for the first time.
