Isa Genzken was in her late 20s when she visited Michael Asher in California on a travel grant from Düsseldorf Academy, where she had begun teaching in 1977. They had first met in Europe, but their time together in Los Angeles remains a significant event in Genzken’s life. For her first large-scale solo exhibition in California, she will produce a new sculptural installation specifically for the city of Los Angeles and in homage to her friendship with Asher. Genzken’s US retrospective recently concluded its 2013 – 2015 tour to the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas TX, the Museum of Modern Art, New York NY, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chicago IL. A comprehensive retrospective organized by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands is currently on view at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, Germany.
