"CELLBLOCK I AND CELLBLOCK II" - A SHOW CURATED BY ROBERT HOBBS at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York

"Cellblock is organized into parts I and II. The first section is a spare hanging of works, setting up a series of similarities and differences in relation to the cellblock theme, while the second fleshes out this theme by presenting a far greater range of cellblock types, illuminated with diagrams, with the full knowledge that any such showing can only be representative, never inclusive." 

Cellblock I and II features work by artists such as Robert Motherwell, Robert Smithson, Kelley Wlaker, Peter Halley, Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, Jean Genet and Donald Judd. On view through February 2nd, 2013 at Andrea Rosen Gallery, 525 and 544 west 24th street, New York. Text by Robert Hobbs, the curator, photo Alexis Dahan
