SIGN OF THE TIMES / TIMES OF THE SIGN—an exhibition curated by Julia Schleicher, tracing the parallel working lives of Hanne Darboven and Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt—is on view in London.

Hanne Darboven submitted her works to a clear, artist-defined structure that allowed her to generate a visual form for the contingencies and relationships that emerged from the numerical process. Darboven’s method strikes a contrast to Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, who composed her work using patterns and combinations of typewriter characters. Despite their differences, both artists shared an interest in the productive potential of external structures.*


Through September 19, by appointment.
