Adrian Ghenie: Works on Paper
Plan B, Berlin, autumn/winter 2008

Co-curated by Mihai Pop and Matt Price, this was an exhibition of new and recent work by celebrated Romanian artist Adrian Ghenie (b. 1977, Baia-Mare, Romania). Ghenie is now established as one of the world’s leading young painters, represented in London, New York and Beijing by Pace Gallery. He has had solo exhibitions at institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver (MCA), the Francois Pinault Collection, Venice, SMAK, Ghent, and the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest (MNAC).

His second exhibition at Plan B’s Berlin branch, this was the first exhibition of works on paper by the artist, not only offering an insight into the process by which Ghenie constructs the complex compositions, narratives and vocabularies of his works, but also demonstrating his mastery of the mediums of drawing and collage. The exhibition ran concurrently, and in many ways in parallel, with two other exhibitions by the artist, the first of which was held in the UK as part of the Liverpool Biennial and the second at Plan B’s Berlin neighbour, Nolan Judin Berlin. The Plan B exhibition was supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute in Berlin.
