DESCRIPTION

On view at David Zwirner’s West 19th Street galleries in New York, Folk Devil brings together a diverse group of international artistsThe exhibition’s title is a reference to sociologist Stanley Cohen’s description of the British media’s hostile reaction towards deviant youth groups in the 1960s, and embodies a deep-rooted fear of subcultures and the morally aberrant. Folk Devil presents a comment on the tendency to create artificial connections between a group of individuals, while it also contains a self-referential statement on the yearly summer shows held at many art galleries under various umbrella themes.
