Rachel Whiteread & others @ Gagosian Grosvenor Hill

9 June 2022 - 26 August 2022

Haunted Realism, a group exhibition featuring the work of more than thirty artists including Meleko Mokgosi, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, and Tatiana Trouvé.

Haunted Realism’s specific focus is a sense that the aspirations of modernity are now “lost futures”—perceptible only as ghostlike traces of their original formulations. It examines some of the ways in which artists have approached this condition by confronting the accelerated flow of images in contemporary media culture, and the proliferation of “non-places” that we increasingly inhabit. The artists’ work convey a feeling that the apparent documentary “truths” of realism can no longer be believed, even as wild conspiracy theories gain influential traction. Our conception of the future is now haunted, even revoked, by a volatile present. Haunted Realism situates these visions within a historical context, showing how our strange present was anticipated by earlier projects.

The exhibition also includes works by Urs Fischer, Llyn Foulkes, Romuald Hazoumè, Neil Jenney, Ewa Juszkiewicz, Adam McEwen, John Murphy, Cady Noland, Albert Oehlen, Nam June Paik, Richard Prince, Rammellzee and Jeff Wall
