JÖRG IMMENDORFF
New Sculpture
10 February through 26 February 2005
UPPER EAST SIDE, NEW YORK
 

While a student at the Düsseldorf Academy in the mid-Sixties, Jörg Immendorff interacted extensively with his professor, Joseph Beuys. Impressed by Beuys’ ideas of artistic freedom, Jörg Immendorff began his own “academy” which parodied and denounced the activities of social institutions. The social and political commentary of these early works created a visual and theoretical thread which continues to inform his work. This exhibition of new sculptures is the first time the artist's sculptures have been shown in New York.
